Journalism Prizes 

In making the journalism awards, 
Prof. Frank P. Rand cited the pur- 
pose of the presentations as "giving 
recognition to students who have met 
professional journalistic standards 
during the past year, and to aid in 
maintaining and advancing these 
standards to the end that students 
will have an interesting newspaper." 

The Outstanding Journalist 
Awards were provided by Pres. 
Raker and Louis Lyons '18, who is 
now Curator of the Nieman Founda- 
tion at Harvard. 

Prof. Rand cited the extensive 
scope of the Collegian to include 
coverage of the State legislature for 
news of interest to the student body, 
and presented a variety of other 
news stories, many of which were 
handled in a professional manner. 

"These accomplishments," he said, 
"were made possible by the function- 
ing of the Collegian staff as a team. 
This is the outstanding achievement 
of the staff." 

The prizes were awarded to Dario 
Politella, a copy of "Nieman Es- 
says"; to Carroll F. Robbins, a vol- 
ume of F. Scott Fitzgerald; to Av- 
rom Robot, the "American Chron- 
icle"; to- -Rosemary Speer, a volume 
of .lames Joyce. 

Honorable mention prizes went to 
Robert Burke and Ed Cynarski.

an engineering laboratory have been 
authorized by the state legislature.

that it might be completed for the 
following fall. 

Appropriations for the structure, 
which will be a wing of a future en-

three temporary wooden buildings 
which will serve as annexes to vari-

Hazel Scott, famed interpretress of 
piano moods, will launch her latest 
nation-wide concert tour and in- 
cidentally open the concert season at 
the University of Massachusetts with 
U appearance on Monday evening, 
September 2!> in the Curry S. Hicks 
Physical Education Building. 

Miss Scott has earned an inter- 
national reputation as a pianist with 

her renditions of classical music and 

her highly individual interpretations 
of the modern style She is a star of 

the concert Stage, radio, the motion 
pictures and of the famed Co/s So- 
'■a iu, one of Manhattan's best-known 
night spots. 
A Juilliard School graduate, Miss 

Scott, in private life, is married to 
Con gr e s s me n Adam Clayton Powell, 
Jr. She was born in Trinidad, but 
has lived most of her life in New 
York City. Her motion pictures in- 
clude: "Something to Shout About"; 
"Broadway Melody", "The Heat's 
On" and "Rhapsody in Mlue". 

An innovation at the first concert 
of this year's series at the University 
will be the use of the "Cage" at the 
Physical Education Building to housM 
the artist and audience. Enrollment 
has now exceeded the capacity of 
Bowker Auditorium, formerly used 
for such concerts and convocations of 
students. Dork Alviani, director of 
; musical activities at the University, 

has given the assurance that the 

"Csge" will be adequate for concert

Fur the fifty-eighth consecutive- 
year, the Colh n in ti is welcoming an 
entering class of Freshmen. Fact is, 
we're developing ■ case of laryngitis 
by now. 

Kut primarily to the Freshmen we 
extend our greetings, not, we presume 
to blind optimists, not to befuddled 
high-schoolers, but to a crew of real- 
ists ready to dig in and work for 
their education, liberal or what-have- 
you. So, men and women, let's take 
off our rose-colored glasses and look 
at the U of M situation, which you 
must remember is pretty general all 
over the country. So in effect we are 
not only welcoming you to the U of 
M in particular, but to University 
life in general. 

Ton girls may be subjected to a 
form of hazing you will undoubtedly 
consider 'high-schoolish'. Don't let it 
bother you too much; it's merely a 

relic of ancient days. The forma art- 
there, but the spirit behind it has 
been slightly misdirected. 

We have a small group of untouch- 
ables in our campus caste system. We 
refer to a group of rejects from Har- 
vard or Princeton, Jackson or Welles- 
ley. Consciously or subconsciously 
they harbor the feeling they are 
somehow too good for us here at the 

' U of M. Most of us came here as 
first choice, and we presume the 

I same is true of you Freshmen. Even 
if not, remember that education is 
where you find it. The job is up to 

you as individuals 

For the most part our students 

cherish a deep loyalty to the V of M. 
Some of the younger ones voice it 
in different ways than the older stu- 
dents such as veterans to whom aud- 
ible demonstrations of loyalty appear 


A brickbat is a fragment of a 
brick. Hence, it has come to mean 
any uncomplimentary remark, in- 
sult, or aspersion hurled at some- 
thing. That's the etymology of the 
name of the column that was perhaps 
the most successful innovation in 
last year's Colleiiiav. 

We are completely democratic in 
our acceptance of these brickbats. We 
assume that the uncomplimentary re- 
marks, insults, or aspersions are 
based on some real gripe you have, 
some detail, large or small which is 
wrong on campus or with the CoUei/- 
inn. We are forced to admit that the 





Dear Editor, 

I would like to add my suggestions 
to the growing pile for suitable mas- 
cots for U of M athletic teams. 

I believe the U of M needs some- 
thing distinctive for a mascot — 
something that no one else has. So 
why not have either a.i AAKDVARK 
i or a GNU? The possibilities for pub- 
licity in connection with either of 
these animals are myriad F'rin- 
stance, the Aardvark, as you may or 
may not know, is a bur rowing South 
African anteater. Think of the sports 
headlines leading: "U of M Aard 
varks Dig In: Take Ants Out of 
Jumbo Pants." 

And the Gnu (pronounced noo), a 
species of African antelope, offers 
many outlets for the facile imagina- 
tion, also. After a U of M victory the 
headlines might read: "V of M Gnus 
Are Bad News For Trinity." Or, "No 
Gnus Will Be Good News For Ver- 
mont In Saturday Opener." We might 
even paint the Gnu blue and be 
known as the 'T of M Klue Gnus." 
Who can tell? This might even effect 
a change in the speech classes 
throughout the nation! Instead of 
enunciating "How now, brown cow?" 
the cry would be: "Hoo noo, blue 

If this idea gains favor, I will per- 
sonally journey to South Africa this 
summer to catch either an Aardvark 
or a Gnu — provided, of course, that 
tfie U of M finances the trip.

original name of this letters-to-the-

dearth of bouquets during the course 
of the year that we decided to stop 
kidding ourselves and apply the cor- 
rect name to the column. 

So if your brickbat is based on 
some real complaint, We welcome it. 
If it is mere malicious insult (and 
we will ch'-ck up) we reserve the 
right to can it. If you have any com- 
ment, idea, or thought in general, fed

We don't like them either. 

Van Meter Heads U 
As Acting Prexy 

Pending the appointment of a new 
president for the University to re- 
place Dr. Hugh P. Baker who retired 
last June 80, I>r. Ralph A. Van Me- 
ter, Dean of the School of Horticul- 
ture, has assumed the post of Acting 
President. Dr. Van Meter previously 
'served in that capacity last winter 
J when President Baker was forced to 
take a vacation in Florida because 
of ill health. 

The Board of Trustees, which is 
considering the choice of a new presi- 
dent, has as yet given no indication 
of their decision. 

2 West 45th Street, New York City, 
announces that the Institute has been 
requested by the Argentine National 
Cultural Commission to assist in the 
selection of two United States grad- 
uate students who will receive fellow- 
ships from the Commission for ten 
months' study in Argentina. 

The fellowships will run from 
March 1 to December 31, 1948, and 
will provide round-trip travel plus 
the sum of 5,000 Argentine pesos 
(about $1,250 at current official ex- 
change rates) 

The conditions established by the 
Cultural Commission specify that the 
recipients of the fellowships shall be 
graduate students and research work- 
ers of recognized standing in the 
arts, humanities, natural sciences, or 
social sciences, whose work under the 
fellowship will be of positive benefit 
to the cultural development of the 
United States and Argentina. They 
must be native-born United States 
citizens over 2~> and under 45 years 
of age, and have a working knowl- 
edge of Spanish. Each fellowship 
holder will be required to have a 
specific objective and to sulamit a re- 
port every two months as well as a 
general report at the end of the fel- 
lowship period and agree to abide by 
the other regulations of the Commis- 

Fuller details and application 
blanks may be obtained from the In- 
stitute of International Education, 2 
West 45th Street, New York 27, 

! N. Y. Completed applications must be 
in the hands of the Institute before 

i October 31, 1947 to receive considera- 
tion, and successful candidates will 
have the United States in February 

The Institute of International Edu- 
cation is a private, non-profit organ- 
ization founded in 1919 as a service 
and administering agency for the ex- 
change of students, teachers, and 
professors, between the United 
States and other countries. 


Football is unquestionably an in- 1 
tegral part of the University pattern 
on the Fall campus. This year the 
Maroon and White has unusual pos- 
sibilities, but they are of the boom 
or bust variety, depending on wheth- 
er the injury jinx appears, or stays 
happily absent. 

Of paramount interest to rooters, 
who think less of single wing and Tj 
formations than they do of outward 
trappings, however, are two issues' 
which were subjects for debate by; 
the close of school last year, and have 1 
reappeared in dormitory bull ses 
sions. A student vote will decide one ' 
issue — the adoption of a new nick- ; 
name. The other will depend less on 
student opinion than on the sense of j 
proportion of the council on athletics.; 

A movement, largely conversation- 
al, is now under way among students 
to bring about the readjustment of 
the pigskin schedule to include larg- 
er opponents, now that we have he- 
come a University. 

As Athletic Director Curry S. 
Hicks said at the recent Varsity Club 
breakfast, however, the name change 

that Statesmen is an inappropriate 
name. Other students like the M 
Statesmen, and all the tradition

sentiment it connotes. Others are 
a rut — just like a Gallup Poll. 

The name "Bulls" was proprosed 

for our worthy gridsters, but to n 
students this name suggests cow- 
college, and hence is distasteful. 


Minutemen seems to be a populai 
choice among the football squad, 
it leaves the way open to a crack 
like — "The Minutemen were hours off 
today as trampled all over ..." 
that's pessimistic of course. 

You have your choice on the blank 
provided in this issue. Tomahawks, 
Scarecrows, Indians, Pioneers, Mo- 
hawks, Braves, Redskins, Yankees,

The ColUgian has only one rule in 
this contest. If the number of voti 
is less than 500, we will assume thai 
the campus is content with the n. 
Statesmen. If we get a vote of 500 
or more, the name garnering t 
plurality will be the official name of 
our gridsters and other athleti'-

VA Streamlines Process 
Hopes To Hurry Checks 

According to a recent Veteran's 
Administration Bulletin, veterans 
studying full time in colleges and 
universities under the G I. Bill will 
no longer have to make periodic re- 
ports of earnings. 

The new plan is part of VA's pro- 
gram to streamline procedures for 
paying subsistence allowances. Veter- 
ans entering full time training in in- 
stitutions of higher learning under 
the G. I. Bill this fall will estimate 
their earnings from productive labor 
for the full period of their enroll- 
ment when they register. The amount 
of their subsistence allowances will 
be based on these estimates. 

VA will require no further report 
Df earnings except in those cases 
where it is indicated that the veter- 
ans' earned income is in excess of 
their estimates. 

Although no serious delays in pay- 
ment subsistence allowances are an- 
ticipated, VA is advising student 
veterans to be able to meet personal 
financial obligations for at least the 
first six weeks of the fall term. 

In most cases, the veterans should 
receive their first subsistence check 
early in November, if they enroll 
properly and if the institution cer- 
tifies their enrollment to VA prompt 


The time lapse between the date of 
enrollment and receipt of the first 
check involves two factors. First, a 
veteran generally is not entitled to 
receive a subsistence allowance until 
he has been in training for SO davs. 
•Secondly, all checks are mailed nor- 
mallv on the first of the month, 
covering the allowances due for the 
previous month. Therefore, a veteran 
enrolled in the latter part of Septem- 
ber ordinarily would not receive his 
first check any earlier than the first 
of November. 

The initial check will include all 
subsistence allowances due the veter- 
an from the date of enrollment 
through the end of the first full sub- 
sistence period. VA said delays in 
schools in which the registration is 
heaviest may be unavoidable. Neither 
the institutions nor VA can hire and 
train enough employees to meet every 

Ski Club To Meet Oct. 1 University Staff Greatly Expanded; 

Faculty Enlarged To Meet Enrollment 

The first meeting of the U of M 
Ski Club is scheduled to meet Wed- 
nesday, October 1 at the Physical 
Education Building lioom 10, accord- 
ing to Robert Lowell, President of 
the club. 

Meeting time is 7:30 P.M. High- 
light of the evening will be election 
of officers. 

"If the stock market crashes be- 
tween now and October 1," Lowell 
hazarded, "our treasury may be able 
to provide refreshments of various 
and sundry assortment." 

Lowell suggests that ski enthusi- 
asts not bring their skis to the first

have been made this year, Eight of 
the new instructors are in the new 
school of Engineering, twelve in tin- 
school of Liberal Arts, and seven- 
teen are in the school of Science.

ami Warren Anderson, who returna 
to football after an absence of five 
yeara, center. Present plans call for 
the insertion of Bernie stead at left 
end in place of Downey on the de- 
fense. Phil Smith and Dick Hurt will 
go in for Jakeman and Raymond at 
the guard*, likewise on the defense. 

Starting backfield assignments will 
also depend to a greet extent on 
which team has the ball, according 

to Eck. Either Hal Feinman or 

Charley 1/Kspeiance, rivals during 
pro-season drills, will start at tail- 
back, l>ick Lee, high scorer last sea- 
son, will start at full, and Capt. Stan 
VVaskiewicz will start at quarter, 
providing the Hobcats kick off. Kvan 
Johnston, now suffering from a 
chai -leyhoi se, had first claim at the 
Wingbaek assignment up to this week, 
but. in case the injury does not heal 
before Saturday, the nod will go to 
Pave Jackson, a standout on the 1946 
j a. wees. 

Defensive changes in the backfield 
will put either Jackson or Johnston 
at the safety spot, Feinman and 
L'Eiperanee at the halfback posts, 
and Bob Rulcock behind the line. 

A companion for Johnston on the 
injury list is Bob Pssini, who made 
the switch from guard to blocking 
Ivek in spring practice. Pasini is al- 
so due to get into the pame if a 
bruised heal mends. 

Chief contests during pre-season 
drills have come between Feinman 
and L'Esperance at tailback, an ar- 
gnm*>nt which Eck hasn't yet decid- 
ed, and between Anderson and Hud 
Estelle, last year's sparkplujr, at cen- 

Feinman is unquestionably the 
Spearhead of the Maroon and Whit • 
passing attack, but L'Espersnee, who 
saw far less action last year, has 
shown decided improvement in this 
department, and enough ball carry 
ins ability to make the staff wonder 
whotn to nominate for the starting 


Anderson, who reported late for 
drills, nevertheless outweighs Es- 
telle by a good 2ii pounds at 190. The 
weight factor may bench Estelle 
temporarily, hut the staff, aiming for 
depth, will send him into action early 

While the Maroon an 1 White of- 
this year may include a few 
new wrinkles, rooters of last year 
will probably watch the sine!' win 
in operation again The attack last 
season also included a few plays fn •

will he more frequently used this 
season, Eck isn't saying. A ter

Journalist To Speak 

Mr. Rudolph Elie, editorial page 
columnist and feature writer of the 
Boston Herald, will talk to the jour- 
nalism class Friday, October 3 on 
"Creative Writing for Newspapers." 

A former Hollywood script writer 
and the author of 14 plays and a 
score of short stories, Mr. Elie joined 
the Herald staff in 1939 as a music 
and drama critic. He became a war 
correspondent, and covered the Iwo

Mr. Elie started newspaper work

Good Year Expected 
For X-Country Team 

With the fust dual meet scheduled 
for a week from Saturday, Coach 
Llewellyn Derby's cross-country crew 
entered its second week of practic 
with a fairly optimistic outlook to- 
wards the coming season. Rasing o- 
pinion on the fact that five of last 
sear's seven top men have returned 
it would not seem unreasonable to 
state that the 1947 team has a good 
chance to better the 4-1 record of 
last year's aggregation. 

Although the loss of Alec Camp- 
bell, second highest point-getter last 
fall, and Lew Wells will be felt, 
ready consolation can be found in the 
return of Louie Clough, top point 
man in 1946, Ed Pierce, who showe ' 
steady improvement last fall, Whitey 
Coesar, Ed Funkhauser, and Bill 
Howes, who shares the co-captaincy 
with Clough. To round out the squad 
Don Thatcher and Joe Hilyard have 
returned, and three harriers from 
Devens have been whipping their 
legs into shape. Another member of

"A better season than last 
year" was predicted yesterday 
for the U. of Mass. soccer team 
by Coach Larry Briggs. 

Despite the loss of goalie John 
Gionotti, Joe Kokoski and Charlie 
Stebbins by graduation and of 
"Whitey" Zawicki who has trans- 
ferred to A. I C, Coach Briggs has 
a wealth of material on hand to fill 
these vacated positions. Ed McGrath 
will probably hold down the goalie 

the team who was expected to show 
promise, Walt Szetela, has been 
forced out of action because of an 
injured knee. 

The aforementioned opening meet 
will be with Northeastern at Frank- 
lin Park in Boston. The schedule will 
be identical with that of last year 
except that Fort Devens has been 
added to it, thus giving the local out- 
fit six dual meets, one more than last 

In addition to the varsity team, 
Coach Derby is also in the process 
of organizing a freshman team to 
compete with the Amherst Jayvees, 
Mt. Hermon, Gardner High, etc. Al- 
ready a total of approximately 15 
freshmen have reported for the ajj 

I slot, while "Red" Gracey, a sopho- 
more, will be a capable alternate. J (Jt 
Magri at full back, Bob Tetr. 

j and Jack Holt at half back positions 

! and Ralph Carew at left inside 
undoubtedly be slated for sta 

j berths for the opener against 1 
mouth. This game is scheduled 

1 2:00 (not 1:00) P. M. at Alum,, 
Field on Saturday, October 4. 

Most of the other positions m 
being bitterly contested. Steve Cut. 
necki seems to hold the inside trick 
over Henrique Gerado for center for- 
ward. Contending for the full bad 
slot are Bill Tunis and Milliken. Tom 
Culbertson and Fred Richardson a:>

The right wing is subject to a three 
way battle between Warren Gingraa, 
Jackie Simms, and John Donovai 
Jim Swanick and John Winton, both 
of '50, are leading candidates for the 
left wing. 

Frank Kulas, a regular full back 
last Fall, may have to watch the 
opener from the sidelines. It is ex- 
pected that an injured knee will Iemj

The Cadets are flying again! 

The U. S. Air Force now otters you the chance of a 
lifetime to start your career in aviation. 

If you want to learn to fly, you have one of the 
finest opportunities ever offered in peacetime. Avia- 
tion Cadet pilot training has been reopened to quali- 
fied applicants presently serving enlistments in the 
Army, and to civilian young men who can meet the 
same high standards. 

In order to be eligible, each applicant must be: a 
single male citizen, between 20 and 26V2 years old, 
of excellent character and physically fit. He must 
have completed at least one half the credits leading to 
a degree from an accredited college or university, or 
be able to pass a mental examination given by the 
USAF. He must now be living within the conti- 
nental limits of the United States. 

Upon successful completion of the training course, 
Cadets will be rated as pilots, commissioned Second 
Lieutenants, and assigned to flying duty. 

Reactivation of Aviation Cadet pilot training is 
only one of the several choices open to outstanding 
men who want increased responsibility and advance- 
ment in the field of aviation. It is now possible for 
qualified men to apply for attendance at USAF 
Officer Candidate School — and thus be able to equip 
themselves for such important specialties as engi- 
neering, armament, administration and supply. 

You have a real chance to make progress and build 
a sound career for yourself in today's U. S. Air Force. 
Talk it over with the Recruiting Officer today at 
any U. S. Army and Air Force Recruiting Station.

Dredging Empties Pond 
Dilemma Lacks Solution 

I,, view of the absence of watei 
in the college pond, various author- 
ities on campus have devoted their 
attention to a solution. 

One high official in the adminis- 
tration suggested having the rope 
pull across a basin of water, but to 
this one critic replied, "No soap". 

The fraternities offered to drain 
their treasuries to purchase a quanti- 
ty of beer with which to fill up the 
,,'ond, but it was felt by some of the 
more humane students that this 
might adversely influence some of 
the wild life yet remaining in the 
College pond 

A special student committee is pet- 
itioning the State Legislature for a 
waterway from the Atlantic seaboard 
to insure a sufficient supply of watei 

every year.

5 Cents Still Buys 
One Cup Of Coffee 
AtC Store-Hawley 

by Fay Hummel 

Despite the rise in prices all over 
the country, it's still only five cents 
for a cup of coffee at the College 
Store, according to its manager, Mr. 
Donald Hawley. 

Mr. Hawley claims thai although 
the cost of living is going up, there 

will he no inflation in the ('-store. 

In fact, he has been able to lower 

some prices, especially of this year's 
hooks. However, most of the articles 
are the same price as they wen las' 
year, and many of these, such as 
laundry cases and fountain pens, ar ■ 
being made of better material. 

The only items in the store that 
give any indications of the increased 
cost of living are the paper goods, 
which had to be raised about .'{()': 
last year. However, the C-store works 
on a non-profit basis, and as soon as 
possible, all prices in the store will 
ho back to normal.

Evidently, we deduced in Holmes

this anonymous Freshman is that 
mothers are very understanding crea-

As a subscriber against my will to 
your yellow rag I maintain my right 
to make one important suggestion to 
the Collegian staff: If you haven't 
got the material with which to put 
out a good Collegian, do not publish 
an issue at all or condense and omit 
superfluous material to effect a Col- 
ic gian of feirer pages. 

But in the name of Horace Greeley 
I beg of you not to include material 
of no interest to anyone on campus! 

I considered your cartoons bor- 
rowed from Esquire both lascivious 
and immoral. The feeble attempt at 
a humorous filler (i. e. the College 
Pond story on page six) as nauseat- 
ing. The editorials were evidently 
written by a callow youth in throes 
of ecstasy over the newly-delegated 
powers given him in the last Collegi- 
an election. 

Your paper showed no unity, no

Pall Of Poesy 

Dear Editor: 

In retrospect, a pall of poesy. 

The Chapel bells could not be rung, 
Nor steins of beer be skoaled; 
The songs of State were never sung 
The day that Bates was bold. 

The Bobcats scored, the sun still high, 
On Blanchard's intercepted pass; 
They scored again :— a darker sky — 
No touchdown yet for U. of Mass. 

Our line and backs began to roll, 
And made our score, so quick and 

keen ; 
Too late! Defeat was not the goal, 
But we are six and Bates fourteen 

The men stood on the sunlit field 
Where once the boys had played. 
They played to guild the U.M. shield, 
To win the game, whence glory's 

Let this be said of U. M.'s test, 
They lost the first and won the rest.

no signature on this brickbat, we felt ue - one editorial with any common

those who remember, recall one fro

Chain Reaction 

Either gremlins or a rebirth of 
Army Snafu tactics were prevalent in 
various administrative departments 
this month. Several students in Fed 
eral Circle are still trying to explain 
to their wives why they got a bill 
for dormitory room rent and dining 
hall board, when they had been at 
the circle for the past year . . . In 
agine trading home cooking three 
times a day for Draper Hall. 

Moving day at the Circle was more 
complicated than a chain reaction, 
with A waiting to move into B's 
apartment, and B waiting for C to 
move into A's so B could move into 
C's. The payoff came when one couple 
packed up ready to move and found 
they were moving to an identical 
apartment 'way across the circle, SO 
another couple could take theirs. Hut 
it evened out — one family had to 
move from their original apartment 
to another identical one — only two 
doors down, in the same building. 
Reason? So someone else could move 
into their old place.

The Independents 

Dear Editor: 

There exist here at the U of M 
campus two different groups of stu- 
dents, the fraternity or Greek letter 
students and the non-Greek or Inde- 
pendents. This write-up is concerned 
with the latter. 

For the information of the fresh 
men and those upperclassmen who arc 
or should be interested there exist-; 
a constitution for an Independent 
Students Organization on campus. All 
students who do not belong to a fra- 
ternity or sorority are eligible for 
membership in this organization. 
There are also, strange as it mav 
seem, several students who are will- 
ing to put in the time and effort 
necessary to make this organization 
amount to something and be an influ- 
ential force on campus. 

There are many who may ask just 
how does this organization work and 
of what good it is. 

The Independent Student Organi- 
zation is made up of all non-frater- 
nity and non-sorority students on 
campus. These students elect a board 
of directors who in turn elect off i< 
for the organization. It is the dut 
this board of directors to represent 
the members of the organization 
to help set its policies. 

Membership in the Independ< 
does not prevent a student from join- 
ing a fraternity or sorority if they 
choose to do so, however, until 
time as they may join a Greek letti 
organization the Independents af- 
fords them a voice in the affai 
the campus which they would 
have as individuals. 

In the past, and it will probs 
continue to be the same in the fui 
only about one-half of the student 
campus have been Greek letter 
and it is this half which pra< 
controls the whole. Herein lies

! The Sighs of Bridge \ 

by Deusay Demi 

IS* ■ ■ : 

In view of the increased popula- 
rity of bridge-phiying on the U of M 
campus, students and faculty mem 
bers have in turn felt an Increased 
need for instruction on the subject. 

To satisfy this need the more pe- 
antic have turned to authoritative 
tomes like Culbertson's "Blue Hook" 
and "Gold Hook" of bridge or Gor- 
en's Standard Book of Bidding" and 
"Standard Hook of Flay." The per- 
usal of these hooks /.)/ „ , T ,- V f 9w 
still does not solve the need, so 1 have 
decided to hand over to the V of || 
campus gratis a few basic instruc- 
tions in oider to provide some com- 
mon basis of bridge playing for ran 
dom partners. 

The general rules, instructions, or 
suggestions set forth in this column 
are based on common sense, i n a u 
effort to clear up many misconcep- 
tions evident to me in just a cursory 
examination of campus bridge games. 

Bridge is a wonderful game. This 
column is not for experts, but for the 
amateur like myself who wishes t» 
enjoy rather than suffer through his 
bridge game. 

A Man's best friend is his dog, hut 
a bridge-player's best friend is his 
partner. Any bid you make to your 
partner should clearly indicate what 
you have in your hand. False bids 
may fool your opponents for a while, 
but for the most part they fool your 
partner. Psychic bids have their 
place, but they will be discussed lat-

In setting up the outline of fra-

War Projects recommended that aid 
for the children of France should 
again be included, and that as a 
memorial to her previous work, it

Nomads To Open Season

which played for many student af-

dance scheduled for Memorial Hall 
this Saturday evening, according to 
an announcement by Joe Cohen '49, 
who heads the musical organization. 
Described as a get-acquainted dance, 
the affair is being run as a benefit 
for the War Memorial Fund. 

At its opening engagement, the 
band will take the lid off its latest 
brand of smooth musical styling and 
feature several talented vocalists, the 
band leader promised.

With two weeks of practice com-

have been definitely filled. Joe Kagri, 

who represented with Charlie Steb- 
bins the V of M in the North-South 
game at New York last year, is a 
fixture at one of the fallback posi-

Tetreault at center halfback, Holt a* 
right halfback. Winton at left wing. 
Carew at left inside, and Gingras at 
center forward. 

The starting goal position is the 
subject of a battle between McGrath 
who is nursing a slight injury, and 
Gracey. Czarnecki and Milliken are 
competing for the second fullback 
slot, while the left halfback spot is a 
fight betwee n Richardson and Cul- 
bertson. Donovan and Sims are hot* 1

ous competition is for the right in- 
side post with Ryder, Gerardo, Schu- 
bert, ami l.add all in the running.

Bowdoin is a big question mark. In 
their upset last Saturday, Tufts was 
aided by recovered fumbles, Ion" 
passes, and excellent receivers. Good 
ends stopped Bowdoin's wide end

Here is what the Polar Bears 
have: three good running backs in 
Doby, Beems, and McAvoy; a depend 
able passing attack; a very strong 
left side of the line; and perfect tim-

Adam Walsh is famous. Bowdoin is 
the type of team that capitalizes on 
breaks and then strikes fast. They 
are always a tough team to beat a'; 

We can beat the Walshmen wit

She sahl this was not the first

cricket's souk did»*t bother her as 
much as it did the audience. How 
ever, one requirement of every build- 
ing she plays in is that there must 
be ;> wooden door convenient for her 
to knock on twice before going on to 
the stage. This is her assurance of 
good luck. 

Bhi says her luck has failed her 
thor-rh on some occasions. One time 
she found herself sitting on the stage 
with a broken zipper which meant 
the 'ntire back of her dress was open 
and the whole chorus was staring at 
her. Another time she tripped over 
her skirt and found herself sitting 
in the middle of the stage in a billow 
of white material.

The disappearance of these cards 
which in former years admitted stu-

in their "Hope Full* which is to be 
held Saturday, October 18, following 
the Rhode Is.and State football game. 

The "Frosh" have alreadv felt the

The penalties for losing the rope

From outward appearances it looks

the problem. Departments fail to cor- 

Education, it seems to us, is a liv- 
ing process. A truly liberal education 
should include learning of affairs 
past and present in order to evclv? 
a fairly sensible philosophy of life. 

Yet both students and faculty to 
a large degree seem to be living in an 
ivory or ivy tower, a state described 
by one Brickbatting student last 
year as "intellectual constipation." 
On this issue we can't campaign, we 
can only point out. 

Students seem content here at the 
U of M and possibly at other schools 
to live in their own little world, rela- 
tively free for four years from the 
stress of outside affairs. Witness the 
fact that the Collegian staff had to 
vote to recognize the outside world in 
Collegian pages. The resolution 
passed by a majority vote, but three 
members abstained from voting! 

Most of us want to know what's 
going on 'outside', but can't seem to 
find the proper motivation to pro- 
mote this desire to activity. Many of 
our clubs devoted to special activities 
and interests find a general apathy 

Our system of education here fur- 
ther aggravates rather than combats 

relate their branch of knowledge with 
the others, possibly from a lack of se- 
curity. Teachers hesitate to insert 
their own erudition into even upper- 
class courses, but insist on "follow- 
ing the book." Even when the teach- 
er gives us a ready-made opinion on 
an author or scientific hypothesis, 
we accept it as our own. 

Admittedly Mark Hopkin's log is 
jammed today with many students 
instead of one, but discussion or the 
presentation of both sides of a prob- 
lem, author, or event would be so 
much more educational even in sur- 
vey courses such as European Histo- 
ry and sophomore psychology and 
economics than a mere summary of 
the book in lecture periods. 

It's a Chestertonian paradox that 
a pre-digested, easy-to-eat, capsulated 
education leads to this intellectual 
constipation, but the situation speaks 
for itself. Sporadic individuals, teach- 
ers, and organizations on campus try 
to solve the problem, but the general 
rule seems to be that of diffidence 
If the situation is general, the prob- 
lem is greater than that of the possi- 
bility of an atomic war. 


Just because we believe it would 
be a helluva world without it, we 
maintain a certain amount of faith 
in the good intentions of those around 
us. Yet there are many wrongs on 
campus, educational, economic, and 
gastronomic. The Collegian tries to 
find the facts, survey the situation 
objectively, and make an opinion. 

This opinion may be voiced on the 
editorial page, but only after discus- 
sion with the originator or the poten- 
tial solver of the wrong proves to be 
in vain. This method of solving prob- 
lems may be unsensational but it's 
logical and effective. 

The Collegian stands for intellec- 
tual activity on a fulltime basis, and 

for the best administration and or- 
ganization possible in our GHQ up 
in South College and subsidiaries. 

If you are dissatisfied with the 
Collegian, if you know about some 
wrong you think we can help correct, 
if you have some ideas for Collegian 
pages, feel free to let us know. 

Mr Upsell last week let us know in 
no uncertain terms what he thought 
was wrong with one issue of the Col- 
legian. If he has any ideas about 
what could be right about the Col- 
legian, we sincerely invite him or her 
to join the Collegian staff. The same 
invitation goes for anyone else with 


It has been called to our attention 
that UM's co-eds have allowed their 
etiquette to slip to a deplorable low. 
Many of our campus lassies make the 
unpardonable error of supposing that 
upon meeting a male student that it 
is up to the latter to initiate saluta- 
tions. Suc'.i a situation leads to un- 
fortunate complications. 

To show what kind of difficulties 
he often found himself, our inform- 
ant gave us the following example: 
"You are introduced to a girl on a 

Sunday when she looks like some- 
thing. You pass her on the campus on 
Monday when she looks like nothing. 
She waits for you to speak. You don't 
recognize her and walk right by. 
Then you find out from your friends 
that you're a snob." 

The whole thing could be avoided 
if only girls followed the prescribed 
rules of courtesy and spoke first. 
"You should write an editorial," our 
friends said. 

So we did. 


The people suffering from early 
fall colds deserve no sympathy. They 
should know better than to go grass- 
ing at this time of the year. 

Persons who bemoan the disappear- 
ance of the nickel hamburg aren't 
looking close enough. It's still here, 
but the price has gone up to 20 cents. 


To Mr Upsell '60, with apologies: 

I'm not writing this to display lit- 
erary talents, nor as a future (I 
hope) member of the Colle</i(ii/ staff. 
I am Writing to apologize, because I, 
a mere freshman, laughed at the 
Esquire cartoons. Tell me, kin! sir, 
does that make me an immoralist? 

Speak for yourself, G. W., when 
you talk about "Material of no in- 
terest to anyone on campus". Oh yes, 
I walk Stockbridge mound, but along 
with hundreds of others. AND MOST

The Collegian (Esq. included) is 
as much a j>art of the campus as 
Draper Hall (food included). Th. 1

Another point I don't quite under- 
stand is: "As a subscriber against

Dear Editor: 

For some years now I have listened 
to complaints, gripes, or what-have- 
you about Draper. Most of the sign- 
ees of these emotional epistles have 
through the years been quite subjec- 
tive in their observations. 

Now for a change let's all be open- 
minded and OBJECTIVE on the 
great and overwhelming problem that 
confronts us Let's throw all emotion- 
alism out and look at a few facts. 

One's first impressions of Draper 
come with an immediate background 
of home and mother's cooking. What 
public eating place could stand up to 
such a comparison? 

Freshmen eating at Draper gain 
in the course of the year from 5 to 
10 pounds. 

The meals at Draper are not hap- 
hazardly planned. There is a dietician 
on salary at all times. 

Any comparison between Dining 
Halls does not have a common basis. 
At Draper the preparation and serv- 
ing of food must proceed along lines 
somewhat different than others be- 
cause of the number served. 

Draper Hall will seat 280 people 
yet serves some 600 people. All these 
people must be served in time for 

The cost of food at Draper is $8.50 
per week for 21 meals. The cost of 
food at other establishments off cam- 
pus would be at least $15.00. 

If the cost of food at Draper were 
to rise in order to provide greater 
luxury for a certain few, such an in- 
crease would cause hardships for 


The basis of the discontent at the 
cafeteria is definitely psychological. 
It is quite true that the presentation 
of food is psychologically unsound 
The present procedure, however, is 
necessitated by the numbers served, 
time allowed, and space provided. 
Now if the cafeteria were to provide 
plates, more space, and more time, it

Dear Editor: 

Have you noticed that loose flag 
stone on the walk in front of the 
Abbey? Or that warped floor in Old 
Chapel? Those poorly lighted stair- 
ways leading to the Psych lab in 
Stockbridge? Those jockeys driving a 
around campus in their new or other- 
wise cars trying to show off to the 
co-eds inside or on the walks ? Those 
bicycle operators who insist upon 
tearing up as close to you as possi- 
ble before applying their sometimes 
faulty brakes? 

Perhaps somewhere you have read 
about a safety drive sponsored to re- 
duce the number of accidents in the 
country, state, and county. The Uni- 
versity has backed that drive in 
voice, but while it continues to allow 
to remain such flagrant violations 
of the safety laws on campus, little 
can be said about the sincerity of 
the words and promises. 

A loose flagstone walk may mean 
broken limbs and nasty falls. A 
warped floor, there since 1943 or 
earlier, presents another safety prob- 
lem. A door spring against which the 
weight of a six-footer struggles is 
surely not suitable for a girl's dormi- 
tory. Dark stairways do not mingle 
safely with scurrying students. 
"Show-Offs" are not only dangerous 
to themselves but to everyone in the 

Much time and money are being 
spent in erecting new dorms, annexes 
to our overcrowded buildings. Why 
cannot more attention be paid to the 
already-present problems of student 

The best kind of accident insurance 
policy is the one which is never col- 
lected upon. 

Arnold Binder 

is quite certain that much of the 
present discontent would disappear 

It may be said further that more 
and better food can be served at 
Draper. But if this be done, the cost 
per week must rise. We see, there- 
fore, that greater luxury may not be 
permitted lest the cost per individu- 
al become prohibitive. 

Finally comparisons between other 
dining halls and Draper must not be 
generalized. Operating procedures 
from dining hall to dining hall are 
different by reason of time, space, 
and number served. When corhpari- 

The other night we saw the 
classic, "Resurrection", a ren 
of an old picture starring Pre 
March. It was an excellent piec 
work, based on a novel by To 
telling the story of a Russian 1' 
who finds his Inner self after at! 
ing social prominence in the r 
classes of the land and who joi] i 
peasant gin whom he has ah 
loved, in her servitude in Siberia il, 
gives up his friends and posit 
champion the oppressed peo 
cause for a new Russia, and i 
doing, is a typical Tolstoi hem 
downtrodden peasants. 

More than a stirring oppea 
tolerance and freedom, it struck m 
as being a sort of model for the type

out to a suffering public. With the 
shortage of celluloid and the vai 
difficulties of production the film 
people have been up against, a \\ 
army of old pictures have been 
released to take care of empty 
screens. Some of them are good, as 
the one we saw, and others are miser- 
ably bad. Unknowingly, perhaps, 
Hollywood has let the public see .

One of the recognized methods of 
padding the content of a newspaper 
is the column. The Collegian in the 
interest of tradition uses this device 
wide'.y. We have had everything from 
the Crows Nest to the Trash Barrel 
and now, as a final straw, it was 
suggested that a column devoted to 
musical affairs might be pertinent. 
We hope to be of service to you by 
announcing the location and time of 
musical events both classical and 
popular that may be of interest to 
you, reviewing recent record releases, 
if and when they arrive, and by serv-

column any reasonable opinion or 
statement upon musical topics that i 
is volunteered by anyone. 

We are, I suppose, a little late to 
be commenting on Miss Hazel Scott 
who opened the semester's activities 
with a concert in the "Cage". Miss 
Scott has the decided advantage, for 
a concert artist, of being able to at- 
tract those usually antagonistic rivals 
in taste "the iong hairs" and "the 
short hairs". In fact it was this ver- 

level. It is evident that if you open 
one heart with this type hand, part- 
ner will not be able to show spade 
preference except at the three level. 

If you force your partner to show 
preference at the three level you def- 
initely indicate a very strong hand. 
This is rather ambiguously termed 


If you have opened with four to 
four and a half honor count (too 
strong for one no trump, and too 
weak for a two bid) you may inform 
your partner of this, if he responds, 
by a jump bid on the next round. (I 
shali discuss rebids in a subsequent 
column, but for now suffice it to say 
that you may answer a one bid at 
•'• lu'el of one with a minimum of 
one half an honor count and a five 
card suit.) 

One No Trump 

When you bid one no trump, you 
tell your partner (and opponents) 
exactly what you hold. You must 
have three and a half to four quick 
tricks, with a balanced hand of 4-3- 
3-3 or 4-4-3-2 with AK or at least AQ 
"f your doubleton. 

If you have this honor count with

performer of both classical and popu-

Scott's own peculiar domain— the 
musical parody or satire, she is su-

altogether delightful. My only regret 
concerning her performance is that

Winning path this Saturday when 


Big Green Team 
Overwhelms Briggsmen 

A heuvily favored Dartmouth teem 
pried the lid (.If the U of M soccer 
■eaaon, with a resounding crash, by 
trouncing the locals 7-1, at Alumni 
Field last Saturday. Time and ex- 
perience combined with a wed-co- 
ordinated Big <lreen offensive were 
the deciding factors. 

Throughout the first and second 
periods, the U of M surprisingly 
held its own by limiting the visitors 
to a single goal, scored during the 
initial stanza and aided by a deflec- 
tion off U of M fullback Joe Magri. 
As the second half opened, the 
visitors began to drive nice more. 
Pound'! shot was deflected by Czar- 
necki for a Dartmouth point in the 
first minute of play. Daniels, easily 
the outstanding man on the field, 
soon scored— first off Czarnecki and 
then on a spectacular, clear boot. 
Winton'l iroal, the lone local tally, 
followed shortly, hut was almost im- 
mediately nullified by a Merrian kick 
past McCrath. 

Carrying their assaud into the 
final canto, the Big Green culmina- 
ted it by scoring twice more. An 
Osborne to Winstanley pass followed 
by the former's penalty shot regis- 
tered the last two goals. A short- 
lived U of M rally was erased by 
two meritorious saves by the new 
substitute goalie, Soule 

The forth coming Williams tilt will 
find the local team the underdog. The 
Ephmen won last year's contest, 4-2, 
and still retain most of last season's 
outstanding team . . .

the Tech Field in Worcester. 

Despite pre-game favoritism that 
places the U of M two touchdowns 
better than the Techmen, Coach Tom- 
my Eck and his staff are showing 
deep concern over this Saturday's 
encounter. And from ail appearances 
their anxiety seems well-founded. 

W.P.I, remains somewhat of an 
unknown quantity inasmuch as its 
football team has been geared to the 
stylings of a new coach, Les Pritch 
ard, former mentor at a Western 
Pennsylvania high school. 

The Engineers revealed a bit of 
their offense last week as they were 
downed in their opener, 19 to 0, by 
a supposedly strong Wesleyan Uni- 
versity eleven. However, a quick look 
at the statistics show that the Pritch- 
ard coached team, operating from 
the tricky "T" formation, was almost 
on par with the Wesleyan eleven. 

On the other side of the fence, 
Coach Fck has the problem of get- 
ting the lads "up" for this week's 
clash after last Saturday's "rough 
and tumble" game with Bowdoin. A- 
side from the morale problem, the 
U of M gridmen are in perfect shape 
for the Worcester encounter But for 
some last minute changes the prob- 
able starting eleven will be:

name adorns the starting line-up of 
the Tufts' eleven. And Tufts is our 
traditional rival!!! 

Here's to Devens! — Our only t.d. 
against Bates was scored by Bill 
former Devenite, who came into his

Bowdoin, it was Bill Sweeney, another

College, is batting 1.000 thus far. 
Tufts opened the season by taking the

from the end zone. Raymond then 
looted the decisive "point after". 

Late in the fourth quarter, the Fck- 
inen almost tallied again on a pass 
interception by Sweeney, hut a 15- 
yard penalty on the Bowdoin one foot 
line prevented any further scoring. 

The pass defense of the team was 
excellent in the last five minutes of 
play when the desperation heaves of 

the Bowdoinitei were really danger 

ous. Smith, Yergeau, and Sullivan, 
by their great line rushing, broke up 
many Bowdoin pass plays in the la>t 
few crucial minutes of the game. 
In the opinion of Coach Tommy 

Eck, the greatest Improvement la the 

team this week was their morale. 

Everybody on the wpad was "up" 

for this game, and, although this 

game was rougher than the Hate.-, eoa 

test, the spirit of the entire team was

W. B. Swan's Watercolors

Twenty-four watercolors by the 
artist W. Buckingham Swan are now 
on exhibition in the War Memorial 

The paintings are of scenes in 
Mexico and the U. S. ranging from 
Maine to Oregon and into the South- 
west and are highly regarded for 
realistic technique and an illusion of 
third dimension.

Name Balloting Indicates 
Fertile Imaginations 

That U of M students don't iack 
imagination was shown by the trend 
of voting in the athletic team name 
contest that is sponsored by th* 
Collegian. Although most of the per- 
sons who have already cast their bal- 
lots have indicated a preference for 
the Minutemen, Statesmen, Indians, 
| and Mohawks, a few have permitted 
! themselves wild flights of fancy, and 
suggested a variety of fantastic 
names, such as, the Derelicts, Yo-yos 
Petunias and the Bloody Red Raiders. 
Stili far short of the 500 ballots 
which the Collegian staff decided 
i would show a fair cross-section of 
campus sentiment, the contest will lie 
continued until the next home game 
on October 18. At that time, it il 
hoped that a decision will be reached.

No Tuition 
In lHKi the tuition fee was dropped 
completely and it wasn't until 1926 
that the Hoard of Trustees were again 
troubled with the problem. Then, as \ 
a result of outside pressure to in- 
j crease the college income, it was 
agreed to charge residents of the 
state $60 per year. This was a rate 
believed to be low enough to work 
little or no hardships on the students. 
In 1933 further pressure was ex- 
erted on the board for an increase to 
$100 for state students and $220 for 
non-residents of Massachusetts. In 
1934, the bulletin reported, our tui- 
tion rate was $28.23 higher than the 
average of all the state colleges in 
the United States.

Five A.M. Marches 
Head Hazing Tortures 

Five o'clock marches, scrubbing 

side walks with tooth brushes, paying 
homag« to superiors by bowing . . • 
in case the above sounds to you .ike 
a list of tortures dreamed up by an 
.•x-Cestapo agent, you've struck out 
the first time-up. Instead, they are a 

gro p of "friendly little Incidents" 

designed by Scrolls for the period 
known as Freshman Hazing. 

Last week was commonly known as 
' Hell Week" to all frosh. Mephis- 
topheles would have been right at 
home had he ieft his fiery furnace 
to visit the U. of M 

In the beginning, our initiation had 
us wearing tarns and placards with 
our names and home towns printed 
on them. Complaints at this soon died 
out when the frosh read notices of 
more severe tests of endurance. The 
first of many came along when we 
were obliged to wear our slips one 
inch below our skirts. We combined 
the hanging slip with multi-colored 
clothes, two-toned socks and a hair- 
do that put modern art back ten 
years. When we first appeared, re- 
marks were numerous and often hu- 
morous. "Your wig's on crooked" or 
"Don't tell me you're color blind, 
too." were just examples of the men- 
tal torture we also went through. 

Social life for us frosh was at a 
stand-still during those hectic days. 
If anyone (Freshman boys included) 
made a mistake and spoke to us, the 
shock he'd get on seeing us would 
usually cause him to run in the op- 
posite direction. 

The blow to end all blows came 
Friday, 4:45 a.m. to be exact. Then 
we stumbled wearily into the cold 
dawn to serenade the male population 
on campus. What man wishes to be 
sung to by one hundred and fifty- 
tired girls at the crack of dawn was 
beside the point. 

Salaaming became our 'unfavonte 
pastime when we were required to 
kneel when someone yelled "sopho- 
more"! While this homage was being 
paid, our costume resembled vaguely 
a Smith girl the morning after. Semi- 
hairdos and facials with pajamas 
flopping below dungarees was the 
order of the day. "I see they're wear- 
ing PJ.'i longer again this year" 
struck home more than once. 

Jumping the numerals, singing in 
Draper, proposing to strange me - 
and conga lines on the sidewalk were 
then forgotten. Things were no lo rr- 
er bordering on the hysteria. We 
wen- now well into it and still mov- 
ing at the mad pace set by the 

Begun as a friendly institution to 
hetter acquaint freshman women with 
the routine of college life, hazing has 
undergone a metamorphosis only to 
emerge as a chaotic period during 
which routine is forgotten and col- 
lege life abandoned. 

Freshman hazing officially ended 
Saturday, but epitytoa'ly we shaP 
all feel hazed when we see a Scroll 
a stuffed animal (remember?). Phys- 
ically the girls at ISewis have sur- 
vived, but mentaUy they are sh->ll<-

dent of the organization. 

The Senators, after gaining the 
approval of Mr. M. O. Lanphear and 
the men students on campus, will 
use approximately $400 for the in- 
stallation of the unit. It is to be a 
permanent rather than a portable 
fixture, as the former type is mucn 
less subject to damage. 

With each male student contribut- 
ing $.80 per year toward the Sen- 
ate. Steve reported that there is a 
considerable accumulation of money 
in the treasury, about $1900, an 1 
that it is "still piling up." 

One of the functions of the Sen- 
it.- is to famish magazines for the 
infirmary. Hut as they could spend 
only a mere fraction of their funds 
for reading material, the members 
voted to utilize the rest on some 
thing that is practical and urgently 

The final decision was a loud- 
speaking system for Howker Audi- 
torium, so that convocation quests 
may be heard as weil as seen; for, 
as Steve paraphased Dean Mach- 
mer, "In spite of the fact that as a 
university we are growing by leaps 
and bounds, we must face the fact 
that we will be using Bowker for a

Students usually complain about food wherever they are, but 
this year at the U of M there is a basis of comparision between 
Iraper Hall and the cafeterias on the hill, Greenoutrh and Butter- 
field. An objective analysis of Mr. Johnson's factual statement 
above and of student comment seems to reveal a few points 
Rorthy of mention. 

One fact to bear in mind is that students pay only $8.50 for 
21 meals at Draper, an unusually low amount compared to other 
bchoofo. At Greenough and Butterfield, costs arc higher, due Mr. 
Johnson points out, to cost of plates and additional bussing 
Service there. 

Major point of dissatisfaction from the student point of view 
quality and preparation of the food at Draper (see October 

(olleuian). Complaints of chronic gastronomic difficulties re- 
tailing from Draper food are coupled with student slams at the 
pattractive preparation of the food, a problem, students feel, 
fctinct from the fact that the food is served on trays instead of 
Many students, of course, have no complaints about 
taper food, but they seem to be in the minority.

for 17 BOW projects including the 

construction of the Engi- 
neering building, further dormitory 

construction, addition to the ("hem

wish them well. 

C,.!d beans and corn mixed to-

foods, burnt chipped beef, and other 
culinary defects elicit many com- 
plaints, more so at Draper than at 
other dorms. 

The counter-argument, the low 
Cost of eating, is, it seems to us, 
weak. Some .-tudents say they would 
prefer to pay more if the quality of 
the food would therby be improved. 

In the best of kitchens there are 
bound to be occasional mistakes, but

for the poor preparation of the food

serving 600 people still takes a full 
hour, and some students complain of 
cold food for the last ones in line. 
in February more of our Devens stu- 
dents are transferring, and this will 
put an additional load on Draper 
facilities. According to Dean Curtis, 
however, upperclasswomen will still 
be required to eat at Draper because 
it is the "responsibility of the school 
to maintain proper nutritional stand- 
ards for its students." 

Many girls, however, feel that 
Draper food does little to satisfy 
their minimum nutritional needs.

of inadequate stressing of the need

especially the physical sciences, are 
today unlimited. 

While it is true that more than 
twenty students were turned away

The Tuition Issue 
Dear Editor: 

As a veteran-student I feel justi- 
fied to question the severe raise in 
tuition for this group. Obviously, we 
are already considered as step-chil- 
dren of our benevolent Commonwealth 
by being classed with out-of-state) a 
when it comes to tuition charges, 
but I will concede that it probab'y 
does entail some added administia 
tive costs to handle GI Bill records 
and can sanction a reasonable addi- 
tional charge to cover such expense. 

I can not consider the present in- 
crease in the least way reasonable 
when the non-veteran students are 
obliged to pay oniy a hundred dol- 
lars for their education while our 
purse' String! are played upon to the 
tune of the four C's. Does it seem 
plausible that the clerical work for 
each 100 veteran-students here — not 
considering $100 per vet to balance 
the costs of the other students — 
should actually cost $30,000 for an 
8Vfe month period? I hardly think 

To clarify my point.with 30,000 
skins for every 100 vets we could 
hire seventeen clerks at fifty dol- 
lars per week; and each one of them 
in order to make his fifty bucks 
would have to process the VA pa- 
Need I say more? 

I also wish to correct a possible 
error regarding tuition at Devens. 
Uniess they raised it from last year, 
the tuition is not $500 as stated in 
your article, but $450 plus a $50 
book allowance, Furthermore, all 
fees are included in the tuition 
charge; and in the event that the 
book allowance is insufficient, the 
school makes up the difference from 
their don's share of the loot. We at 
Devens felt that $450 was quite un- 
reasonable. But the administration 
there had a somewhat better ex- 
cuse for this excessive charge: Dev- 
ens being a temporary set-up alleg- 
edly having no other source of in- 
come, it could not possibly establish 
itself on less money. 

Whether the money is paid 
through the VA or through the indi- 
vidual student, I consider funds 
paid under his schooling allowance 
the veteran's money. Consequently, I 
think him entitled to more satisfac- 
tory explanation of the need of such 
increased charges. 

If I am wrong in my assertions, I 
stand open for correction.

A Cheer For Track 

One of the active sports on our 
campus is track. I admit I am no 
authority on this subject; however, 
I believe that track is a sport that 
actually no one, except those who 
participate in it, know what it is. 
We are confronted daily, by fellows 
in white shirts and gray pants los- 
ing breath, as they cross the campus 
of the university this fall, practicing 
for what I believe are their cross 
country meets. 

Let's compare track with some of 
the other sports. As the trackmen 
run this course, or jog their dis- 
tance at daily practice, does anyone 
watch them with enthusiasm as they 
do the football squad in a scrim- 
mage? No — but they do rate a cas- 
ual glance by the students once in 
awhile as they cross the campus and 
streak through the orchards. 

When a member of a basketball 
team sees he is in danger of being 
penalized for holding the ball too 
long, he has only to pass it to a fel- 
low teammate and he is momentrily 
out of trouble, but when a trackman 
feels his legs stiffening, or a sharp 
pain in his stomach there is no one 
to take over for him. 

The football player, who is aided 
off the field by fellow teammates, 
with a slight injury, is a proverbial 
hero in the minds of many specta- 
tors, while the floor burns and 
strained ligaments of a trackman go 

At a boxing match, the audience 
literally dies with every blow, while 
at a track meet the attendance is 
always limited and quite indifferent 
as to the progress of the partici- 
pants until they reach home stretch. 

In that free press, our own col- 
lege newspaper the Collegian, most 
any week one can find at least four 
articles on any other sport to every- 
one printed on track. 

The idea that I have been trying 
to get across, or at least the con- 
ception that I have in .my mind of 
track is that it is a hard and thank- 
less sport, but a sport that some of 
the most wonderful feilows in the

Hazing Denounced 

The writer of your article "Five 
A.M. Marches" comes closer to the 
truth than she, perhaps realizes her- 
self. She thinks it perfectly natural 
to impute the origins of hazing rules 
to an ex-Gestapo official. So do I. 

I realize that the spirit of hazing 
in entirely different from that ' 
the Gestapo and that this college 
tradition in America dates back fa' 
beyond the National Socialist party 
in Germany. In view of the happe* 
ings of the last 15 years, however. I 
think, that we should revise and re- 
view our traditions and excuil' e* 
erything which smacks of the tota/ 
itarian and the fascist. The stpara 
tion of part of the population from 
the rest, and its especial humilia- 
tion — in fun or in earnest 
worthy of our American scene I o 
lieve that hazing should be a ;

not-too-formidable Trinity College

Alex Norskey, triple threat from 

Gardner, Massachusetts, is the 
spearhead of the attack. The rest of 
the punch is supplied by the decep-

Don Costello. 

At the present time, the singU-

Intra-mural Sports 

Intramural and interfraternity 
athletic competition is about to 
swing into action. Elaborate plans 
for this year are now being mad' 
by an intramural athletic council, 
advised by Sid Kauffman, associate 
professor of physical education. 

Apart from touch football, volley 
ball, basketball and softbad- a bowl- 
ing competition will be added this 
year. Plans include the formation 
of two leagues, one of fraternities 
and one of the dormitories. They will 
compete first among themselves, 
and at the end of the season the 
winners of each ieague will play the 
other for the championship. 

Director Sid Kauffman came here 
in '30, left in '41 to join the Navy 
■where he was director of welfare of 
the 5th Naval District, and is now 
back on campus as associate pro- 
fessor of physical education.

First — a man's best friend is his 

second — a bridge player's best

Third — the more you teach the less

further with Mr. Paradise after I

down until the following letter was 
brought in: 
Pear Editor and Mr. Demi: 

Your column on bridge is a novel 
and worthwhile idea that should be

Don't let the three straight de 
feats by Rhode Island State fool 
you. This game tomorrow will not 
be a pushover for us. The Rams 
are versatile on attack and very 
stalwart on defense. 

The strongest striking weapon of 

the Rams is their air offensive in 
which their long passes excell. Curtis 
and Johnson share honors in this 
.aerial bombardment which has gained 
the Rhode Island squad over one 
hundred yards in each game so far. 
Watch "poor little Rhode Island" 
pass from four or five different for- 

Ycnto and Squadrito are smart, 
shifty hacks for the Rams. 

The much publicized Herb <>' 
Kourke at center is the big gun in 
the line. The rest of the line con 
sists of plenty of weight and a store 
or reserve strength. 

Massachusetts probably won't 
measure up to Rhode Island in pass 
offensive, but our extraordinarily 
fierce plunges will baffle the Rams 
for sixty bloody minutes. Kv John 
ston is expected to be as fast as ever 
in his initial appearance in the back 
field this year. Feinman,, and 



to good advantage. 

Not Even A Drop To Drink 
Although the general sentiment is 
that everything possible at present 
is being done for their comfort and 
convenience, they do feel that for 
the present rental fee, one dollar per 
adult per week, they should have 
running water in the individual 
trailers, and that there should be 
better shower and laundry facilities. 
Telephones are not missed to any 
great extent, since the group is so 
congenial that there is always 
enough gossip to go around without 
having to use a telephone. 'Studying 
at home" is the general rule for the 
grinding husbands. 

Just a glimpse at the happy face.- 
and of the exuberant spirit whicli 
prevails throughout the camp is 
enough to indicate how well the 
trailer life is iiked. Each trailer is 
a compact home, complete with cook 
ing, sleeping, studying, and enter- 
taining facilities, and each trailer 
is prettier and more inviting than 
the next. Little wonder they are so 
happy and proud.

uals whose attitude was considered 
"uncooperative" in complying with 
the hazing rules; all had three or 
more charges against them. 

The trials took place in the Sen- 
ate chambers set up in Memorial 
Hall. As the guilty ones were led 
into the courtroom, a multi-watt 
beam was directed at their faces, 
making visibility practically impos- 
sible. Freshmen were then forced to 
remove their "beanies," stand erect, 
and respectfully submit their names, 
campus addresses, and answer (pies 
tions posed by the prosecutors dur- 
ing the one-sided examination. After 
being asked whether or not there 
was an excuse for their actions — 
and with only a few exceptions there 
were none capable of nullifying the 
charges — they were sentenced. 

For the most part, the sentences 
meted out by the senate were cam- 
pus chores, such as building bonfires 
at rallies; acting as cheerleaders 
and water boys at home games; de- 
tailing four freshmen to carry the 
rope for the rope-pull across the 
pond; and brushing the numerals be- 
tween Stockbridge and the C store 
with a tooth-brush. 

Speaking for the Senate on the 
subject of hazing, Secretary Louie 
Clough had this to say: "Hazing, 
in general, was well carried out; a 
few minor misunderstandings oc- 
curred, however, most notable of 
which was the "Amherst Green 
Beanie" incident. This was not sanc- 
tioned or upheld by the Senate, in 
fact we didn't even know about it." 
In a personalized statement, Mr. 
Clough said, "I feit like a Gestapo 
agent giving the third degree to 
someone. It was all in fun, though.'"

"Pats", Not Pabst, 
Memorial To Prof. 

by Henry Drewtnamj 

"Pat's will be done", exemplifies 
the policy of the English Depart- 
ment toward the course in English 
Literature which is a requiremi | 
for all students here at the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts during their 
Sophomore year. 

A great majority of the students 
at the U. of M., who have humbly 
submitted to this "commandment" 
have come to realize the seriousnt-> 
of its implication. However, only a 
few are familar with the origination 
of the pseudonym for the course. 

Pat's is not spelled PABST, u 
one world-wise Freshman sincerely 
believed, and sonsequently is not a 
course being sponsored by the mak- 
ers of a choice beverage. 

Unique as a memorial to Professor 
Charles Henry Patterson, one time 
head of the Department of Lan- 
guages and Literature who passed 
away in the summer of 1933, is the 
involuntary manner in which his 
nickname slowly came to represent 
the course with which he had so 
much to do. 

For a period of about ten years 
Mr. Patterson alone handled all the 
lectures connected with English Lit- 
erature sessions at Bowker Audito- 
rium. During this time he made 
countless friendships and won the 
admiration of both the faculty mem- 
bers and students. 

It is likely that the memory of 

Mr. Patterson, whose life was as 

colorful as much of the literature he 

: taught, shall live on in the simple 


: phrase, Pat's English.

It's obvious "Skitch" has had plenty

and he follows that experience rule in

M Johnson remarked. Food is or

• This purchasing bureau buys 

food for all State institutions, thin

U milk and ice cream are bough' 

ctly from the University dairy. 

The dining halls are on a separat 

budget from the rest of the (Jnlver- 

and budgets are submitted a 

year in advance through the Board 

Of Trustees and the proper State 

nization in Boston. 

l:i response to some of the specific 

lent gripes on the food situation 

M Johnson stated that the butter 

about which some students com- 

ned was not rancid; it was a less 

live brand which was bought on 

trial end which proved to be slight 
ff in flavor or texture, and con 
ently will not be used again. 
He stated definitely that meat por 
were being served in just as 
• quantities as possible consis 
' -it ri economy of food. 

"We try to avoid monotony," he 
"but there are oniy certain 
items to choose frees and it is im 
possible to vary the menus too much. 
We do try, however, to avoid repe- 
tition of most items within a ten- 
day period We will also try in the 
future to standardize the menus 
I in all three cafeterias." 
In conclusion, Mr. Johnson re- 
marked that facilities at Draper are 
g brought up to date as quickly 
B| possible, but that so many nec- 
y repairs and maintenance 
la arose during the war that it is 
difficult to attend to them all at 
An annex is now under con- 
ction behind Draper which 
when completed will feed an addi- 
tional 300 students, and new wash- 
ing machinery for glasses is now on 
for the main cafeteria. How 
ever, the chief problem confronting 
Draper Hall is the large numbers of 
students which must be fed under 
existing conditions.

I0U probably know a number of men in your 
class who were pilots in the wartime Air Force. 
They are the best advertisements for the Aviation 
Cadet program. Talk with them about it. 

Chances are, they'll tell you their service as 
pilots was one of the most interesting and exciting 
phases of their lives. Fast action, comradeship, 
and the chance to serve their country paid them 
dividends they don't forget . . . added something 
to their stature and poise that they couldn't have 
gotten anywhere else. 

Cadet life today is no different. As a potential 
pilot in the new U. S. Air Force, you serve at a time 
of equal importance to the nation. Freedom, 
responsibility, the chance to use your own initiative 
are all yours. * 

The training you get is the finest your govern- 
ment can provide - $35,000 worth for every Cadet. 

You're taught by skilled instructors, fly the best 
airplanes. Your living facilities are excellent. 

Learning to fly today opens profitable fields to 
you in aviation - which is expanding more rapidly 
than at any other time in history. 

Pilot training is open, now, to single men, 20 to 
2GK years old, who have completed at least one- 
half the credits for a degree from an accredited 
college or university -or pass an equivalent ex- 
amination. Cadets completing the course will be 
commissioned Second Lieutenants, ORG, and as- 
signed to active duty as pilots with the Air Force. 
During their tours of duty they will be given a 
chance to qualify for Regular Air Force Commis- 
sions. This is your opportunity! Look into it today 
at your nearest U. S. Army and Air Force Recruit- 
ing Station. 





Stockbridge Notes 

By G. II. Davidson 

The walls of Bowker Auditorium 

reverberated OH Wednesday night, 
Oct. 8, to mighty male voices sing- 
inn "Finiandia" and "Winter Song". 
To those that overheard, I assure 
you it wasn't the Don Cossacks or 
the Metropolitan Opera Company. 
It was Prof. Mathieu getting his 
'47 18 Stockbridge Glee Ciub under 

The Christmas program is already 
taking shape. Some men that tang 
last year were joined by a few new- 
comers, l'auline Baker, last year's 
accompanist has returned in that 

More new voices are needed, so 

if you can sing, or think you can, 

come around to Stockbridge Hall 

some Wednesday night and join the 

Glee Club. 


The Animal Husbandry group will 
take a field trip to the Mass Artifi- 
cial Rreeding I'nit in Shrewsbury, 
Mass. on Wednesday, the 15th. 

There, they will participate in a 

program designed to tie in with the 

University Animal Breeding course, 

and they will also act as Guides for 

the day.

Walter D. Campbe.l, '49, an An- 
imal Husbandry student who came 
from Middleboro High School, and 
who is also First Vice-President of 
the State Future Farmer's Associ- 
ation, will be sent to the National 
Convention of the F.F.A. to be held 
Oct. 18-24 in Kansas City. As one 
of two delegates from Mass., he goes 
with ail expenses paid. 

"Most men, after taking our one- 
year Forestry course, expect to have 
a timber company presidency hand- 
ed them. If, after taking the course, 
you are willing to be an apprentice, 
then you can ivork up to a responsi- 
ble position." 

This was Prof. Holdsworth's mes- 
sage to Stockbridge Foresters. He 
went on to say that the course does- 
n't enable one to take Federal For- 
estry Civil Service Exams. It is a 
course designed to present sufficient 
technical knowledge in forestry. 

One graduate is now Superinten- 
dent of University of Maine Forests. 
Another is in charge of our own for- 
ests. A third is working on the New 
Haven Waterways, and a fourth is 
with the U. S. Forestry Service out 

Many have the mistaken idea that 
Forestry covers all types of trees 
from appies to shade trees. Prof. 
Holdworth said, "Forestry means 
the raising of trees as a crop. Here 
at the University, the complete 
curriculum presented gives the op- 
portunity to experience practical 



With egg prices at 90 cents a dot- 
en on the market, we were more 
than surprised when Prof. Jeffrey, 
head of the Poultry Husbandry 
Dept., said that twice a week, freah 
eggs are turned in to the campus 
cafeterias at 40 cents a dozen. Heal- 
so stated that $12,000 worth of 
poultry products are also sold to the 
cafeterias annually but the hitch 
comes when all proceeds are turned 
over to the state. 

The Poultry Dept. plans for the 
year include a Breeding School in 
November, which yearly attracts 
300 people. 

Also on the agenda is the plan 
for a turkey range that in time will 
be handling oOO-fiOO birds a year. 
Funds have been authorized, and the

ground was broken for the plant on 
iast Friday. 

On the breeding end of the line, 
work is progressing on the develop- 
ment of a strain of birds in which, 
it is hoped, the problems of meat 
and blood spots on eggs will be done 
away with. 


It is tradition on the U of M cam- 
pus, announced Steve Czarnecki, pres-

to forego the wearing of the letters

"Should we," ■Stud a member of 
the Massachusetts Ways and Means 
Committee last spring, "expand Fort 
Dev«BS to a four-year program us- 
lag the buildings the Army has al- 
ready built as a basis, or should we 
continue to enlarge the plant at Am 
herst to provide educational facili- 
ties for the I >evens transfers at the 
end of two years?" 

President .1 aiiie.s Conant of Har- 
vard, it will be remembered, argued 
in effect that it would be wasteful 
to eniarge a temporary setup like 
Fort Devens even though on the sur- 
face it might seem like a saving to 
the state. The Army might possibly 
reclaim Fort Devens as a military 
post, he pointed out, and it would in 
general be much wiser to build up 
the university at Amherst where the 
plant and the nucleus for a univer- 
sity were already established. 

Devens, it was pointed out, is used 
strictly for veterans, and it would be 
sheer duplication to have two units 
of education neither adequately ful- 
filling a university role. 

"But," said a member of the Ways 
and Means Committee, "through the 
government we obtain $.">00 from 
each veteran to help maintain ex- 
penses at the GI college at Devens. 
As the veterans transfer to Amherst. 
the sum we receive from the veter- 
ans is reduced from $500 to $220." 

Put in this way, the problem for 
the Board of Trustees was: expansion 
at Amherst or at Devens. Inducement 
to have the legislature expand the 
Amherst branch would seem to have 
been to raise the tuition here, em- 
phasizing the permanency of invest- 

Trustees, we understand, took this 
Devens fee, lopped off $100 ($40 of 
which would pay the Student Activ- 
ity Tax) and figured that the veter- 
ans would still be able to get all 
their books on the remaining $fi0 for 
two semesters. 

What they didn't know was that 
this sum would not be sufficient to 
provide books and supplies for the 
GPs for a year. Engineering students 
alone pay $42 for first semester 
equipment. English majors sometimes 
purchase five or six books in one 

College Book Store reports are not 
yet complete, but preliminary dis- 
cussion with students and with 
authorities at the College Store indi- 
cate that possibly 40 to 50% or 
more of the veterans will exceed 
their $30 quota per semester. 

If this proves to be the case, and 
in fact if any more than 15% of the 
veterans exceed their quota, we feel 
sure the Board of Trustees will re- 
duce tuition rates in January at 
their next meeting, so that no veteran 
will have to pay out of his pocket 
anything for books and supplies. 

This wouid seem to be in keeping 
with the spirit and the letter of Pub- 
lic Law 346 (the GI Bill of Rights) 
and with the Morrell Land Grant 
Act signed by President Lincoln in 
1862, designed to provide low-cost 
higher education in state colleges 
and universities. 

Acting on the principle voiced last 
spring at the Ways and Means Com- 
mittee meeting, expansion at Am- 
herst, the State has already acted to 


Dear Editor: 

We should like to bring to your 
attention a recent occurrence at this 
campus which we believe serious 
enough to merit your time. An ac- 
quaintance of the undersigned, Hu- 
bert Zilch, a talented student who 
came to our University under a 
scholarship, had just been able to 
manage his expenses at school. He 
had taken on part time work, and by 
reducing his personal expenses to a 
bare minimum was managing to get 

Quite recently, an order was is- 
sued from the college cafeteria pro- 
viding that all students wear tie and 
suit jacket to Sunday meals. Hubert, 
due to his difficult financial posi- 
tion, did not have a jacket and was 
in consequence refused permission to 
eat. Hubert's heaith had always 
been precarious, and going without 
food for a whole day was too much 
for his delicate constitution. Late 
that evening, Hubert passed quietly 

Naturally, our bereavement is 
great, and to forestall similar occur- 
rences, we propose the following: 
that a fund be set aside to provide 
dinner jackets for those students 
who have none. We feel that such a 
provision would eliminate any future

request to that effect by a member of 
the Ways and Means Committee. 

That is the background of the tu- 
ition raise this year, a move entirely 
in the hands of our Board of Trustees. 

At Devens part of the $500 tuition 
fee was spent by the state for text- 
books and supplies. The Board of 

the State has provided approximate- 
ly two and a half million dollars for

Dear Editor: (with apologies to 
Milt Gross) 

By me is realization that on the 
campus is raising a stink coeds. By 
the weaker sex the boys is giv- 
ing the coeds gradually salutations 
with felicitations. Is being circulat- 
ed gradually rumors from no neck- 
ties with shaves. Is being fair coeds 
by the weaker sex the boys? Is the 
whole night studying hard the boys 
home work. Is gradually plenty sleep 
them losing from coke machines with 
pool tables with alcoholic beverages 
and from the coeds praise it gives? 
Nah, gives better lectures. All time 
is lectures what from the weaker sex 
the boys is falling away the hair.

Dear Collegian: 

I wouid like to voice a few opin- 
ions in answer to the article in last 
week's Collegian in the way the men 
students are dressing around the 
campus. So there are coeds here who 
don't like the way we dress! That'3 
too bad. Have any of these high- 
minded coeds taken time to consider 
that sixty-five dollars a month don't 
go very far toward buying clothes 
with prices what they are today? 

Let me ask you a question. Are 
you girls here for an education, or 
are you like the rest of the adoles- 
cents around here who try to put on 
the dog? Sure It's nice to be neat, 
but what the hell? Does that mean 
we ail have to wear double-breasted 
Botany 555's (which, incidentally, 
kick a hole in your pocket to the 
tune of 80 dollars)? 

Kid, get wise to yourself. This is 
not West Palm Beach. We neither 
have the money to spend on such 
clothes nor are we fortunate enough 
to have a Dad who is sending us to 
college. What we get, we pay for 
ourselves. Therefore, speaking for 
the veterans, I'm sure it's not going

To those short-sighted microceph- 
alics who voted in the dashing name 
of "Statesmen" for our football 
team, this column slings an armful 
of juicy brickbats. They should be 
very proud in voting for a name 
that is nothing to sports writers who 
have been using that tired, hack- 
neyed title since 1937, and that will 
carry no connotation of a university 
football team. Synonymous with the 
name "Statesmen" is the antique 
title of Mass. State, and it will be 
very confusing when the legitimate 
Statesmen render in four part har- 
mony "Old Black Joe." 

And yet it is indicative of the 
total lack of UNIVERSITY spirit 
on this campus. We have a long way 
to go yet before we can honestly call 
ourselves a university, despite the 
various departments, schools, deans- 
etc. We favored the name "Redmen", 
and had even discovered a theme- 
song to go with it. The name came 
to us via the song, some time ago, 
but due to unforseen dificulties last 
week, resulting in no column, we 
were unable to claim parentage of 
the only decent name on the list. 
Doric's idea of girls in Indian out- 
fits, along with a general redskin 
motif was absolutely tops, and we

less time thinking of us. We'll live

. .Note on the passage of time:. . 

A day or two ago I was engaged 
in impressing a freshman with my 
memories of the 'Good Old Days" 
when the University of Massachu- 
setts was only Mass. State College, 
and the general atmosphere had less 
of the present "dignified demeanor" 
and more of the frontier spirit, and 
an instructor would be light-heartedly 
lynched for springing an unan- 
nounced quiz. 

My reminiscences had reached a 
point in time just before the war and 
I was describing a certain infan <us 
Vic party where the couples had 
danced all evening to the same Glenn 
Miller recording because the disc 
jockey loved the piece and weighed 
210 lbs. The freshman, who had besi 
a model of quiet attentiveness. 
asked, "And who is Glenn Miller ' 

It was in this manner, b<: ier 
veteran, that I discovered that se 
days bounded by the Sunrise re-

have gone with Glenn Miller

W" Standard 





e boys in Butterfield have been 
laining lately that their gerani- 
just aren't growing. It seems 
body keeps putting coal in their 
w pots. According to Mr. 
k 'e Brehm, superintendent of 
ngs and Grounds, the boys are 
to have coal bins in their front 
for at least another year, 
tterfield's heating system was 
ch;> ., r ed from oil to coal January 1, 
1943, and is still coal although the 
res* of the campus has a piped- 
i heating system. When steam 
heat is put into Butterfield it will 
hav* to be extended from Greenough 
ami Chadbourne. 

Mr. David thought the extension 
would cost about $20,000, for which 
there is an item in the budget now. 
Hew long the school must wait for 
the money and the "go ahead" on the 
project depends on the legislature. 

A committee will be appointed 
in the near future, said Mr. Brehm,

"What a thrill!" was Wally Kal- girls' trainer stated, "the old timers 

laugher's first answer to the 
tion, "How do you find it working 
with the 48 girls on the drill team?" 
Then turning serious, the ex-army 
captain, now the drill-trainer, con- 
tinued: "Girls pick up the drills faster 
than fellows. It takes fellows from 
two to three weeks to know the fun- 

will have to compete tO win hack 
their positions." 

Doric Alviani, in making a state- 
ment, said, "The drill team and band 
act as a unit. The band plays the 
music; the >rj r | s f orm tm , |,.tt,. r ing.

doing that type of work as they are 
not forced into it. 

"The only trouble with girls is 
keeping their eyes straight ahead 
while marching; they have a tenden-

Wally concluded by saying that the

this are "still on the fire." However, 
this decrease in number plus the fact 
that the group is becoming well-

Eckmen Succumb To Hex 20-1 1 
Defense Fails To Halt R. . 

Hal Fienman Sparks Both Statesmen Touchdow i 

Led by "scatter back" Sal Vento, the Rhode Island R 
continued their hex over the U of M gridmen by staving oi a 
late rally and returning home victorious, 20-13, after a rough 
tumble contest last Saturday afternoon on the Alumni Field. 


U Of M Booters Edged 
By Powerful R.P.I., 1-0 

The U of M soccer machine puffed 
and i» anted last Saturday afternoon, 
hut it couldn't cope with the formid- 
able kicking attack displayed by a 

powerful RP1 eleven, with the re 

su.t that the visitors eked out a 1-0 
victory at Alumni Field. 

Although the Maroon manaped to 
prevent a huge one tided score, the 

winners nevertheless reigned su- 
preme even as early as the open in- 
minutes of tin- initial period when 

barrage after barrage of shots was 

fired at the local net. The only re- 
pressing ohstacle the triumphant 

Trojans encountered was goal-tender 

Ed McGrath, who almost tinglehand 

edly repelled each RIM assault and 
prevented any score in the first can- 
to, and for that natter, during most 
of the contest. 

However, evt-n titOUgb the Britfps 
men managed to keep their heads 
above water in round number one, 
the "hi law of averages caught up 
with them during the second period. 
It took only four minutes for aris- 
tocrat Louis Auguste, the grandson 
of the ex-president of Haiti, to flip 
a corner pass to teammate Kieald.' 
who then pr oce e de d to "head" the 
ball past McGrath. That was the 
lone tally of the day for either side, 
but it was good enough to win. 

Meanwhile the I' of M of f ense was 
definitely handcuffed by the New 
Yorkers. Occasionally Maroon flash- 
es of power occurred, but these wen- 
few and far between. 

With their brief homestay at an 
end, the Hriggsmen will depart for 
Storrs, where they will encounter 
the U. of Conn. Saturday.

As Lou Clough Wins Eighth Straight 

With Lough Clough striding to his eighth straight victory, his 
third this year, the U of M cross-country team loafed to a 19-42 
triumph over weak Trinity College last Friday on the local course. 
The victory kept the team in the undefeated class with three wins.

Aggies Held To 0-0 Tie 

In their tirst night game of the 
season, Stockbridge fought Nichols 
Junior College to a scoreless tie at 
Webster before 2000 fans last Fri- 
day night. 

A blocked kick kept the Aggies on 
the defense for most of the first 
half, but splendid punts by Dave 
Smarsh kept them out of trouble. 

In the second half, a passing at- 
tack with Frank Stewart pitching 
started a Stockbridge march but 
penalties prevented them from scor- 

Wentworth Institute boasting . r > 
straight victories, will oppose the 
Aggies here at 2:30, Friday. 

Third Victory For Locals 

In covering the course in 20 :'M, 
Clough set a new college record, the 
previous one being 21:17 set by Brad 
Green in 1941. The course record is 
still 80:25.6 as established by a 
Worcester Tech harrier. Clough fin- 
ished approximately 60 yards and 19 
seconds in front of Kd Lemieux, 
Trinity's former New England 
Champion. Ed Pierce came in third 
Whitey Cossar fourth, Ed Funk 
houser fifth, and 1'aul Chain"' 

In a preliminary race, the U of M 
freshmen edged the Trinity frosh, 25- 
80. Tony Dougas led the procession 
across the finish line with Collins 
fourth and Chadwick fifth. 

After three easy victories this fall, 
the Derbymen will run up against 
their toughest competition on the en- 
tire schedule Saturday when the Mit 
harrier.- come here as opponents. The 
Engineers were the only aggregation 
to beat the locals last season and have 
just as formidable a team this year. 
In a triangular meet with Harvard 
and Holy Cross they placed six men 
in succession at the head of the finish 
line paradex and are still unbeaten. 
They finished third in the New Eng- 
land Intercollegiate race at Boston 
last fall only twelve points behind 
victorious Rhode Island State. 

Their three best men are Henze, 
Noss, and Knapp All three give 
Louie Clough tough competition for 
first position and the whole team, 
which is very well-balanced, will 
cause plenty of trouble. Henze was 
ninth in the New Englands last year, 
finishing eight seconds in front of 
Clough. Mom was 12th and Knapp 
' 17th. 

Football Pictures 

Football movies of the U of M— 
Rhode Island game will be shown 
Friday night at 7:30 in Bowker 

The newly-Crowned "Statesmen" 
scored the first and last touchdowns 
of the game, but in the interim, the 
hard driving Ram* engineered three 
touchdowns as a result of a dece >- 
tive ground and aerial attack. Late 
in the fourth period the accurate 
flinging Hal Fienman, who had 
sparked both Maroon tallies, almost 
pulled the game out of the fire, but 
the rally fizzled out. 

After the Statesma i had drawn 
first blood by scoring late in the 
first period on a lunge by Dick Lee, 
Rhode Island tied the score in the 
second period by marching 70 yards, 
with Vento finally carrying over 
from the two yard line. At half 
time the score was deadlocked a* 
6 S. 

Early in the second half the Rams 
scored their second and third touch- 
downs as they took advantage of 
the breaks which came their way. 
Frequent penalties kept the States- 
men in constant trouble. 

Edgar drove over from the 7-yd. 
line for the second tally, having pre- 
viously galloped 17 yards on a bril- 
liant right end run. Six plays after 
a Rhode Island touchdown had been 
calied back due to slipping, the 
Rams were again in the U of M end- 
zone for their final touchdown. It 
was the speedy runs by Sal Vento 

which put the pigskin in scoring 
lition each time. 

The final period opened with 
Statesmen exhibiting plenty of 
tie and determination. Sparked 
the spirit of tackle Issy Yerjreau, 
the entire U of M line found | 
Selves to give Hal Fienman ample 
protection in letting off pai ■• 
his receivers. With 7 minute- of 

playing time remaining, 1><> 

grabbed one of Fienman's pas* 
the Rhode Island end zone foi 
final touchdown of the Kame. 

A last V of M drive reached tli. 
Rams' 88-yard line before bog] 
down. The game ended with R] 
Island in possession of the ball, but 
the home forces trying vainly to re- 
gain possession of the pigskin.

U N Visit 

Continued from parte 1 

The visitors found Gromyko of 
Russia, John Foster Dulles and 
Evatt of Australia in a session of 
the Political Security Committee. 
There the discussion was concerned 
with the Marshall proposal for an 
Interim General Assembly, doing 
away with the veto power of the Se- 
curity Council. It was being opposed 
by the satellites of Russia. 

The Administrative Committee 
was discussing the money spent in 
operating the UN, and the Trustee- 
ship Committee was debating the 
possibility of Southwest Africa, for- 
merly belonging to Germany, being 
made a mandate of the UN. 

In the afternoon the visitors heard 
the delegates from Lebanon and Ye- 
men, and the Ad-Hoc committee on 
Palestine, delivering fiery speeches 
in opposition to the Palestine parti- 
tion plan, approved by the big four 

One of the oddest things seen in 
this international atmosphere was 
an Arab, wearing his traditional, 
long, white, flowing robe, and upon 
his feet in place of sandals, a pair 
of brown sport shoes topped by a 
pair of flashy socks. 

The temporary site of the UN at 
the Sperry-Gyro plant has been and 
still is in a state of repair, but the 
body will move into new quarters 
at New York soon. The site as is, is 
still very beautiful and impressive. 
Perhaps the overall impression ob- 
tained by the group visiting is "if 
the Security Council can function as 
smoothly as the committees, the road 
to peace could be a lot smoother."

Alumni home-coming weekend 
Saturday and Sunday brought many 
familiar faces back to campus. After 
attending the Norwich — U. of M. 
football game, the alumni and facul- 
ty adjourned to Memorial Hall for 
a reception and refreshments. A 
committee appointed by the student 
Senate supplied the coffee, dough- 
nuts, and cider for the alumni get 

From Mem. Hall the alumni went 
to their various fraternity and so- 
rority houses, where most of the 
fraternities, upon the suggestion of 
the interfraternity council, gave a 
buffet supper followed by an infor- 
mal dance in honor of their graduat- 
ed members.

The primary purpose of the trip 
is to attend an illustrated lecture on 
the evolution of weapons to be pre- 
sented by L. J. Kirtland, curator of 
the 1'SMA museum, but other nota- 
ble events are on the agenda — in- 
cluding the West Point — Washington

contingent is assured of a good view

Eck Revamps Line 
For Vermont Game 

A major shake-up in the starting 
lineup for the Statesmen is expected 
by Coach Tommy Eck when the U 
of M gridsters oppose U of Vermont 
at Burlington this Saturday. 

Injuries in last week's Norwich 
game and the fact that Vermont has 
a strong and fast line have necessi- 
tated several changes in the prob- 
able starting lineup. Captain Stan 
Waskiewicz may possibly be replaced 
by Bob Bulcock as signal caller. 
Warren Anderson, burly center, will 
see little if any action Saturday, be- 
cause of a bruised hand. Jack Down- 
ey, because of his outstanding down- 
field blocking in past games, will 
draw the starting left end assign- 
ment. In the event that Charlie 
L'Esperance, still shaken up from 
the Norwich game (he was knocked 
unconscious by a blow on the jaw), 
is unable to play, he will be spelled 
by John Dubois. 

Probable starting lineup:

Patrols of student volunteers and 
professional personnel are constant-

the mountain. Any suspicious actions 
or fires discovered are to be report- 
ed immediately to the Forestry De- 
partment which will then call in fire 
apparatus from surrounding towns 
for assistance.

Profess.;!- Holdsworth stated that 
the Amherst group will not be called 
upon in the present emergency un- 
less a fire were to get completely out 
of control in which case, not only 
local but State fire- fighters would be 
Bent for. Students would not be asked

Mt. Toby has been University 
property ever since IMC, and it was 
the Forestry Department that cre- 
ated Cranberry Bog as a precaution 
against its destruction by fire. Orig- 
inally a dry, fi-acre, red maple 
swamp, the area was cleared and 
flooded to form a .10- acre artificial 
water barrier which serves to pro- 
tect the land adjacent to the rail- 
road tracks, nearby. The mountain 
is used by Forestry Department stu- 
dents for field work, although the 
1938 hurricane destroyed much of its 
standing timber. 

Cloned To Viaitor* 

Professor Holdsworth concluded 
by saying that the Toby area is now 
closed to visitors, and no fires are 
permitted anywhere in the region.

The campus regrets the loss of 
Norman Peter Pronty, 81, <»f the 
Ciass of 1949, who died in the Cool- 
ey Dickinson HoapitaJ <>» October 
17. following a brief illness. 

Known as "Pete* 1 by his class- 
mates, Norman was gr a du at ed from 
Springfield Classical High School 

and entered the University in Feb- 
ruary 1946, following service in the 

Army Air Force during the war. 

At the University "Pete" majored 
in landscape architecture and was a 
member of the Men's dec Club. His 

brother, Fletcher, was graduated 

from the University in 1941, while 
his sister is at present doing .mad 

oate work bare. 

He is also survived by his wife, 
Ann Marie (Dwyei) 1'ioiity. 



School spi tit, we believe, is a di- 
rect function of faculty-administra- 
tion policy toward academic activi 
ties and sports. In the past few 
years school spirit to some has ap- 
peared vacillating, probably because 
of an expanding school. 

Whatever the case, it now seems 
evident that a sound, healthy atti- 
tude is being evolved, tending to- 
ward what Acting President Ralph 
Van Meter terms a "healthy balance 
between studies and extra-curricular 

The question of policy assumed gi- 
gantic proportions this week as a re- 
sult of conflicting schedules for a 
good number of the energetic girls 
on the U of M drill team. The team 
under the direction of Wally Kai 
laugher has occasionally used the 
convocation hour as its only pre- 
game drill with the band, but home 
economics convocations interfered 
this week and last. 

The matter has been settled equita- 
bly to the satisfaction of Doric Al- 
viani and the drill team, and in the 
effort to strike a permanent balance 

a masti ng was called to try to settle 
the overall problem. 

This group of faculty members in 
l>ean Machmer's office early this 
week suggested that the hand he in- 
cluded in the military department 
next year, and the drill team in tin 
yirls' athletic department. 

Freshmen and sophomore men and 
women could thus meet their re- 
quirements in these subjects, band 
and drill team could meet once a 
week for joint practice, and, since a 
definite hour would be scheduled for 
practice, juniors and seniors could 
arrange their programs to include 
this period for practice in either ac- 
tivity if they so desired. 

Col. Evans, military department 
head, has already given his approval 
of this plan, and we trust that the 
girls' athletic department can work 
out a similar equitable arrangement. 

We think this setup reflects a 
growing sense of responsibility on 
the part of our administration and 
faculty to achieve the "proper bal 
ance" between studies and academic 

Dear Editor, 

The University of Massachusetts 
is an institution of learning. How 
its faculty will he able to cope with 
such a mind as that which conceived 
the letter concerning "Ties and 
Shaves", and women's comment . 
concerning the same, is beyond my 
pnor imagination. 

How such a piece of utter nun 

sense, pure unadulterated trash, 
and just plain foolishness ever found 
its way into print in the CoUegian, 
is beyond me. Supposedly, the edi- 
tors read any and all contributions 
and separate the wheat from the 
chatl*. If they don't follow some sue'r. 
procedure, it might be ■ worthwhile 
innovation. MV>* wtiatt 

I feel that the editors of the Cot- 
legion should hesitate to accept BUCh 
material. If they do so, let them at 
least make it readable and spelled 
correctly. Nonsense, humor, and fun- 
ny language are fun reading. I like 
it. Many people fee! the same way, 
I believe. However, when it's ham- 
mered up the way it was in this 
letter, it is no longer fun to read. 
Let's have none of it, please. 

Why should I criticize this "piece 
of literature" with my name at the 
end? Because I didn't put my name 
there!! I didn't write that junk. 
Someone evidently feels that I am 
fated to be famous, and is helping 
fate out. Please, fella, leave fate 
alone! I'leeze! My reputation!

Dear Editor, 

We agree wholeheartedly with 
Doric Alviani and George Burgess 
on the issue of the name "Redmen" 
for the University athletic teams 
and feel that the Indian motif, if 
carried out, would be unique. We 
suggest that voting be held again 
under the auspices of the Senate 
and W.S.G.A., after the pattern of 
student government elections, where- 
by each person's name is checked 
off as his vote is cast. If a petition 
is needed to bring this about, we 
would be glad to circulate one.

A Note On Hygiene 

Dear Editor: 

Joe Bernard worked himself up | 
greatly over something that nobody- 
is discussing. We girls don't have 
to be told how much money the vet- 
erans have at their disposal each 
month. We know that by now. But 
who is asking them to buy new 
"double-breasted Botany .~>;">f>s" or 
"hand-painted silk neckties"? 

What we expect of the men on 
this campus is cleanliness. Rich or 
poor, one of the first things a child 
learns at home — or should learn — 
is cleanliness. By the time he or she 
reaches college, those fundamental 
lessons should be a habit, not an ef- 
fort! Since this is a coed college, we 
can do very little about "casting out- 
royal eyes on you peons"; you sit 
next to us in class and in the Libe, 
whether we like it or not. 

Is it asking such an outrageous 
favor of you to shave at least every 
other day and to keep your clothes 
and yourselves clean? I don't think 
so. $<>."> a month should allow you to 
buy soap, and your studies leave you 
enough time to wash your laundry 
and look after your wardrobe. We 
girls have as much studying to d« 
as you, and we manage to get out- 
washing done in spite of it all. 

Nobody tries to steal from you the 
chance to get an education which 
the Government has given you, but 
while cramming all that knowledge 
Into your heads, you ought to try 
and keep up a clean appearance. Or 
diil you perhaps cut classes the day 
they taught the importance of clean 
liness and personal hygiene?

some of the difficulties in expenses 
as a result of the cost differentials 
between this and last year.

Calling on all faculty members to

pointed out that the new rules on 
student life worked exceedingly well 
the last two months of the spring 

"The rules were considered to., lib- 
eral by the administration and many 
members of the staff ; many students 
considered them too strait-laced 
In the opinion of the committee (on 
Student Life) they represent the high- 
est level of compromise possible in 
the present state of public morals,"

Scoring almost at will, the U of

scoring three times.

Though the contest grew dull due ti- 
the onesided score, the Norwich lads 
tried their best to liven it up with

In the first period the Statesmen 
launched their initial touchdow , 
drive when Hal Kienman intercepted 
a Norwich pass ami ran it hack 2**< 
yards to the visitors' 4."). A sustained 
ground attack with Kienman and 
])ick Lee alternating on the offen 
sive culminated in Lee hulling ove 
from the 2 yard stripe. 

hi the second period, the States 

men unloaded with a running and 

passing attack which nearly ran the 
Horsemen off the field. Taking the 
hall on their own 20 after a touch 
hack, the Statesman proceed e d to 
march 80 yards for a score with Gil 
man driving over from the 7. 

Norwich elected to kick off and 
Gilman ran the ensuing punt hack 
to the Norwich :17. Two plays later, 
the Maroon and White had a first 
down on the 111. l.'Esperanee passe I 
to Sweeney for a first down on th<>

Coach "Fuzzy" Evans has his Ver- 
mont boys running from the unbal- 
anced T and the single-wing. The 
line cracker is Hurley, who is sec- 
onded by St. Gelais. Agile Hurley is 
also their accurate passer. Stalwarts 
in the Catamounts' forward wall 
(better than Hates' front rank) are 
Cook, a r,0-minute tackle, and Ur- 
sprung, an end who was outstanding 
against us last year. 

According to the statistics thus 
far, this game is a tossup and should 
be a thriller as it was last year. The 
scouting of Vermont indicates that 
we can beat them on blazing down 
field running plays and occasional 
razzle-dazzle plays. 

This is Captain Stan Waskiewicz's 
last year on football. Before the sea 
son began, the question was, "Will 
Stan be able to play?" The answer 
is now quite evident. Although under 
a severe handicap (knee injury from 
basketball last year) the game and 
spirited captain has done a great 
deal for the Eckmen in his calling of 
signals, exceptional blocks, and occa- 
sional runs. Yes sir, Stan is as 
smooth on the football field as his 
two-tone Chevrolet is on the road. 

Enthusiasm keynotes the game be- 
tween the frosh and the JV's this 
afternoon. According to the informa- 
tion from the coaches, both squads 
will be at full strength for this tus- 
sle. Don't miss it! 



Booters Lose To Conn. 
Trinity, Amherst Next 

In a bruising game, an underdog 
U of M soccer team was pulverized 
by U of Conn., 6-1, at Storrs last 

Leading the Uconn attack was 
Baldwin with two first period tal 
lies. For the Briggsmen, left for- 
ward Ralph Carew scored in the 
third period. 

Frank Kulas returned from the in- 
jured list to make his first appear- 
ance of the season. Sheldon Smith, 
recently promoted from the jayvees, 
made an impressive debut. It is ex- 
pected that both men will be key 
players in the future games. 

Trinity College will be the opposi- 
tion for the Maroon booters this 
Saturday at Hartford. Despite their 
spasmodically good performances, 
Coach Larry Briggs feels that the 
Maroon has a 50-50 chance of down- 
ing Trinity.

Lou Clough and company hurdled 
their biggest obstacle in heading for 
tan undefeated season as they upset 
[a favored MIT aggregation, 26-29, 
last Saturday over the local course. 
The win was the fourth in succession 
for the Derbymei) and practically as- 
sured them of an undefeated season, 
since their remaining opponents, Am- 
| herst and brother branch Devens, 
'have not shown anything to warrant 

alarm to date. 

The inimitable Mr. Clough far out- 
ran the best MIT had to offer in the 
'person of Dick llen/.e and not only 
'gained his ninth straight harrier win, 
but also smashed his own University 
record lit last week agains' 

Trinity by 8-1 seconds, running the 
course in 20:28.9 

After Clough and Henze in the pro- 
cession came the U of M's steadily 
improving Ed Pierce, who was a good 
distance ahead of MIT's highly-touted 
Knapp and Hunt. Ed Funkhouser and 
Whitey Cossar crossed the line in 
sixth and seventh positions respec- 
tively, then Noss of Mit and Paul 
Channell of the U of M came over in 
that order. 

Tomorrow afternoon the Derby 
striders will be heavy favorites to 
rack up their fifth win as they take 
on A I Lumley's unimpressive Am- 
herst College harriers over the local 
course at 4:00. The U of M fresh- 
men will compete with the Lord Jeff

The contest is in conjunction with

sponsored annually by the National

makes it possible. The marked im-

When Prof. Victor A. Rice, Head 
of the Department of An. Hus., and 
Dean of the School of Agriculture, 
spoke at the Stockbridge Convoca- 
tion, he chose as his subject, Agri- 
culture and Education in General. 

Considered an interesting and 
humorous speaker by all that heard 
him, Prof. Rice explained the place 
that Agriculture has, and its fall 
and rise during depression years. He 
highlighted his talk with many high- 
ly entertaining anecdotes. 

About sixty freshmen attended the 
annual smoker and open house held 
by Alpha Tau Gamma last Thurs- 
day night. Refreshments were served 
and Prof. Barret., faculty adviser, 
showed movies of the Varsity-W.P.I. 

A Halloween dance is planned for 
November 1 at the house, and busi- 
ness meetings are held every Mon- 
day night at 7 P.M. 

James Watson, Editor of the New 
England Homestead, addressed the 
An. Hus. Club meeting on the 21st. 
of October. Mr. Watson spoke on the 
Diversity of Agriculture in Massa- 

Plans are being made for a Har- 
vest Dance to be held on November 
21st. Refreshments and movies fol- 
lowed the business meeting. 

It's the talk of the campus. You 
have heard about it in the labs, the C 
store, the cafeterias, the classrooms 
and even whispered around Goodell. 

"It" refers to the Freshman Re- 
ception and Ball, a yearly custom of 
Stockbridge seniors to welcome the 
freshmen to the campus. This year it 
is going to be held on November 22, 
in the Drill Hall. 

A name band, Dannie Baizie's, has 
been lined up for the dance. Don

Mr. Kirtland illustrated his talk 
with examples of the major types of

The U of M has not clashed with 
Springfield since 1!»41 when the two 
teams fought to a 7 7 deadlock. An 
interesting highlight of this 47 year 
I old rivalry is that a State team has 
not won a game since 1915 when the 
"Aggies" eked out a 14-18 victory 
over the Maroons. 

Springfield is one of the best 
teams which the Maroon and White 
will encounter this season. Coached 
by Ossie Solem, who haR been in the 
biy time for many years, the Spring 
field aggregation is a well balanced 
unit which has shown considerable 
power on the offensive and a sturdy 
wall on defense. In Freiburg and 
Streckels the Gymnasts have two 
triple-threat backs who are consid 
ered among the best punters in small 
college football. Right halfback 
Keith King is an excellent field goal 
kicker and will probably be pressed 
Into service against the Statesmen. 

The Springfield forward wall will 
also present a formidable barrier 
against the onslaughts of the Ma 
toon and White. The line averages 
200 pounds and is fast and hard hit- 

The Gymnasts operate from a 

single wing with many tricky rarl 

ations such as the double wing arid 

the box. Much of the yardage sained 
this season by Springfield has been 
through the variety of their forma 
tions. Passing and end sweeps have 
also been very effective for Spring- 
field arid will doubtless be employed 

to a great extent or Saturday.

In proposing th" establishment <>f 
a University of Massachusetts last 
year, Senator Ralph C. Mahar. 
speaking for the Recess C ommissi on 
on Education pointed <>ut the cultur- 
al benefits of having the State Uni 
varsity in the Connec ti c u t Valley i.i 
til-- educational stmosphere <>f Am- 
herst) Smith, and Mount Holyoke 

One step in Intercollegiate £<><><l 
relations b et w ee n this school and 
Amherst College is the loan of the 
Amherst College Gymnasium to the 
Military Department for its Mili- 
tary Hall, December .">. 

We think this loan represents the 
latest act of pood will on the part 
of Amherst Collage authorities, and 
emphasises the generally pood rela- 
tions of the two colleges, a tradition 
more than 80 years old. 

Amherst Collepe is a blood rela- 
tion to this school, itself, raising 
$2.->,ooo of the $7r.,o!)o required by 
the Hoard of Trustees before it de- 
cided where it would locate Massa- 

chusetts Agricultural College, The 
city of Amherst raised the remain- 
ing 160,000. 

Col. William S. Clark, third presi- 
dent «>f MAC (the first two, Henry 

Klapp French and Paul Ansel Chad- 
bourne presided for a total of two 
years without any sttuffnf body) was 

a former professor at Amherst, and 
had just been chosen professor of 
botany and horticulture at MAC, a> 
Prof. Frank P. Hand points out i:i 
his "yesteryears*'. 

The two colleges today cooperate 
still to fight their common enemy — 
ignorance. Exchange of library fa- 
cilities, use of U of M dormitories 
by Amherst College during gradua 
tion periods, and so forth all empha- 
size this spirit of cooperation. 

Friendly rivalry existing to a 
greater degree in the past as a re- 
sult of the U of M — Amherst Col- 
lege football tilts is of minor con- 
sequence when considered in the 
light of the tradition of friendly re- 
lations between the two colleges. 


The Student Life Committee headed 
by Dr. Vernon P. Helming and stu- 
dent hody, decided at its second reg- 
ular meeting to exclude Colli </ian re- 
porters from their meetings. 

The Cetfeyisw had previously re- 
quested that a member of the staff 
be included on the Student Life Com 
mittee, or be included without vote, 
pr be allowed to attend the meeting 
as a reporter. 

The Committee decided, however, 
that matters discussed at the meet- 
ing might be confidential and that a 
Collegian reporter could Interview 
the secretary niter the meeting was 

We feel this decision of the Stu 
dent Life Committee was andemo 
cratic. We recognize the Committee 
a~ an organization that has accom- 
plished much in the past and has 
dealt more than adequately with 
sometimes ticklish student faculty 

The Committee may be losing 
Bight of the fact, however, that the 
Collegian too has the best interests 
Of the school at heart. Perhaps, we 

argue, the Collet/inn will eventually 
write an article or even take an edi- 
torial stand on the subject. 

Dean Machmer very courteously 
calls us in to meetings at which he is 
discussing with members of the fac- 
ulty or administration subjects about 
which he knows the Collegian will 
report or editorialize. He wants the 
Collegian to be acquainted with all 
the facts as reported to him, be- 
cause he has faith enough in the 
Collegian to presume that once in 
possession of all the facts, we will 
see his point of view, whether we 
agree with it or not. 

Faculty meetings are never closed 
to the public or to the press, and 
as a matter of democratic principle, 
we see no reason why the Student 
Life Committee should close its por- 
tals to the Collegian. 

If the Student Life Committee 
does not feel the Collegian is worthy 
of representation in any degree at 
its meetings, the CoUegiam can not 
conscientiously consider the Studenl 
Life Committee as representative of 
the student body. 

New Song? 

Recently I read i.i your editorial 
section a complaint concerning the 
half-hearted cheeis at our football 
games. It strikes me that the cheers 
which we have are as mediocre a - 
the enthusiasm of the crowd. A 
cumbersome word BUCh as MASSA- 
CHUSETTS is poor material around 
which to build a cheer. I noticed at 
the Norwich game that the new 
"U — M" cheer got a much louder 
response than any other. The most 
effective cheejs an- those that con 
tain short words which can be easily 

At every football gam", in addi- 
tion to cheering, we sing our school 
song. Perhaps the girls can manage 
the range in our Alma Mater, but i 
think most men find it very diffi- 
cult to hit the high notes. In addi 
tion, or perhaps because it is diffi- 
cult to sing, the song lacks melody. 

A good part of the glory of .< 
school lies in the songs which are as 
sociated with it. The so.igs of Wis 
eonsin, Notre Dame, Cornell and 
many others are known the country 
over and contribute a great deal to 
the fame of their schools. I think it 
would be well worth our while to ge* 
a good melodic tune which may be 
sung with ease by the boys as well 
as by the giris. 

Now, I am no tunesmith nor am i 
a cheersmith, but there are probably 
others on campus whose talent needs 
only to be goaded by some form of 
incentive. Why not offer a prize for 
the best new cheer of the year? The 
Senate and WSGA could appoint a 
committee to study the advisability 
of getting a new school song. For 
example, a tune could be bought or 
a contest conducted. 

You might ask, "Who is going to 
pay for these contests?" I suggest 
that one or another of the student 
activities could finance a program 
as I have presented. From the break- 
down of the student tax, published 
a month ago in the Collegian, I de- 
duce that some student activities are 
receiving funds in excess of their 
requirements. (I do not mean to im- 
ply the misuse of funds). I have 
since supplemented my deductions 
with persona! inquiry. I believe such 
surplus funds would be more than 
adequate to finance the above pro-

Gleason, the League's nominee la 
year, waved a languishing ha

out the fire department and when 
the sturdy firefighters came chug- 
ing alon'r, they felt for once what 
it was like to be on the other sid > 
as they were met by a solid stream 
from a two inch hose. Chief victim 
of the fire hose gang was th" Dean 
of the Faculty, who from last re- 
ports is said to have survived. 

One of the leading contenders for 
the sophomore presidency was Dirty 
Dan Dmitri Sny'er. backed by th" 
Neo -Soviet League. The N.S.L., de- 
scribed by a fellow student as a 
"happy-go-lucky bunch of slobs who 
don't know what's going on and

spur them on to victory, stated, "I

Many newspapers have aptly 
called the investigation into alleged

on Un-American Activities "The Big

have been a more fitting arena for 
such nonsense. 

The hearings, besides being on a 
questionable legal basis, bring up the 
fundamental issue of just what is an

Dear Editor: 

Having established an Internation-

half of members on my waiting list 
take leave to apply to you. May I re- 
quest you to put me in touch with 
the readers of your paper interested 
in friendly correspondence? 

Having been secluded from the 
! outside world these long years, and 
yearning for a real democratic en- 
lightenment and a personal contact 
from man to man across borders, my 
members would only too gladly wel- 
come and answer letters from 
I abroad. Most of my members 
: (among them scientists, students, 
experts, businessmen and other well- 
educated ladies and gentlemen, and 
also hobbyists, housewives and ever, 
young boys and girls) have a fairly 
good knowledge of English, but 
would also be pleased to write in 
German, if desired. I am sure my 
members will try to give their pen 
friends every satisfaction. 

Individuals and groups of persons j 
may communicate with me directly, 
stating their particulars and inter- 

To save time an introductory let- 
ter to future pen-friends over here 
will be appreciated. 

Pen-friendships are a step towards 
the creation of that international

"Oh, it tell me about Devens!" 
she squeals in the anticipatory ton •• 
one uses when speaking to children 
or when signifying desire to listen 
to a dirty joke. 

But, really, there's nothing to tell. 
The courses are comparable to those 

here no better, no worse. The 

president of U of M at Amherst is 
the president of U of M at Devens 
as well. The physical plant and the 
living accommodations aren't com- 
parable to those here.... but the 
school spirit is undoubtedly far supe- 
rior. And most of all, the students 
at Devens like the students here are 
proud to be attending the University 
of Massachusetts. 

We caw tell her about U of M at 
Amherst, though. We can tell her of 
the condescending ("Some of my 
best friends have friends at Dev- 
ens ") attitude here found to- 
ward students who spent previous 
semesters at Devens. And although 
we can't tell her the reason why, 
we can give her a doleful summary 
of how everyone here persists in 
calling us "the Devens transfers" 
despite the fact that officially we 
are and always have been just as

expect to be heartily welcomed into

lonely in a foreign land. 

Apparently no one deemed it ne- 
cessary to familiarize us with our 
new surroundings. There have been 
no additional provisions made to ab

This money will be presented to 
Howie Steff, vice-chairman of 

do with politics than the politicians 

Occasionally, when students real 
iss that governmental affairs are 
not being handled according to their 
wishes, as was the case in the early 
•'id's, coordinated "campus rallies" 
take place whereby a few people lose 
their lives and all colleges close for 
an unexpected vacation which lasts 
for months at a time. 

It is to be doubted that an Amer- 
ican student (even our reaction- 
aries at the U of M) would refrain 
from seeing a moving picture with 
a script by the alleged Communist 
Lawson. Never-thedess, in Cuba a 
student who does not approve of 
Franco's political tendencies would 
not drink even a jigger of wine made 
in Spain. 

The School of Liberal Arts heads 
all others at the University in en- 
rollment with 584 students, accord- 
ing to a report from Registrar Lan 

the IHiMI's, students have had more to earn respect, and not acquire it sim 

ply because it is an inherent S00QS 

sory of professorship. 

Rum and Personality 

"Cuba libra", is ■ phrase which 
began as a waicry and has Bince 
come to mean the pleasant concoc- 
tion known to us all as the Rum 
Coke. This is a favorite drink of the 
Cubans as one might suppose from 
the Cuban song, "Rum and Coca- 
Cola". Rull sessions, similar to those 
carried on at drandonico's have a 
tendency to develop whenever the 
treasured ingredients of this drink 
are combined. 

Jose hopes to receive his M.S. De- 
gree in Food Technology in one year. 
"With such a degree I will have 'per- 
sonality' in Cuba," says Jose. " 'Per- 
sonality' is absolutely essential for 
success in my country."

Sounding Chapel Bells

Doric revealed that the ten bells 
have been played for ten years with- 
out change of equipment. The pres- 
ent equipment has recently become 
extremely worn, making emergency 
measures necessary. 

Treasurer Hawley has approved 
of funds being set aside to have the 
chimes repaired, Doric concluded, i 
Although a "permanent chime pro- j 
gram has not yet been established, 
the bells are expected to be fixed 
before Christmas."

Undefeated Frosh Vie 
With Monson This P.M. 

The Massachusetts Freshmen, un 
defeated in inter-collegiate footbal' 
competition to date, with two one- 
sided triumphs tucked under their 
belts, are all set for their tussle with 
Monson Academy this afternoon at 
Alumni Field. 

The frosh triumphed in their sea- 
son Opener as they whipped their 
brother Statesmen from Fort Dev 
ens by the lopsided 27-0 score. A.I.C. 
was next to provide the opposition 
for the 'SlerS and the Statesmen 
overpowered the Aces 13-0. 

As the records show, the Fresh 
men have given a very good account 
of themselves in their games to date. 
They will have that record to uphold 
when taking the field against Mon- 
son in what should prove to be a 
thrilling contest right from the open- 
ing kickoff. 

The postponement of the scheduled 
contest for last week gave the 1 T of 
M lads a good chance to get over the 
bumps and bruises suffered in their 
American International clash and 
they should be up for this contest 
which will be their next to last game, 
the final clash on November 13 
against the Springfield College 

It is the first time this year that 
we are surely the under-dogs. Many 
sport fans see Springfield by three 
and even four touchdowns. However, 
the breakaway runs by L'Esperance 
and company, the neat defensive rec- 
ord of our team to date, and our 
stylish offensive power all indicate 
that Springfield may well be in for 
a sad afternoon at Pratt Field. 

According to Mickey Cochran, 
brilliant Vermont back, the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts players are the 
cleanest and hardest hitting bunch 
that he has come in contact with all

The trip last Saturday for the soc- 
i cer club was plenty costly. Henrique 
Gerado, playing his best game of the 
I yoar, suffered a dislocated elbow; 
> Red Winton received another con- 
cussion and is out for the season ; 
Jack Sims hit a cement pavement 
with his knee; and Tom Culbertson 
was bothered by cramps. 

The soccer officials had to halt th" 
game temporarily as we had one too 
many men on the field. Play resumed 
after one of the Trinity players car- 
ried young Parry Rriggs Junior 
from the field. 

The elaborate steak dinner was 
well-received by everyone on the SOC- 

ers struck like an unexpected thun- 
derstorm. Massachusetts received the 
opening kickoff and in three do 
could do little against the Green's 
front wall. On the fourth down I 
Sisson was forced to punt, the ball 
rolling out of bounds on the Ver- 
mont 12-yard line. From there quar- 
terback Rob Hunziker let fly wit 
shovel pass to tailback Jack Hurley, 
Vermont's outstanding player of the 
afternoon, which was good for 28 
yards and first dow.i on the 40. 

Bob St. Gelais lost five yards OB 
an attempted reverse, but on the next 
play and only the eighth of the g;i 
tailback Hurley, and blocking-hack 
Hunziker swung back into action. 
this time with Hurley on the pitch- 
ing end. Hunziker grabbed the ovsl 
on the Massachusetts 49 and with 
the aid of a couple of timely blocks. 
raced the remaining distance into the 
end zone, unmolested. Stan Ursprung 
kicked the extra point and Vermont 
had a quick 7-0 lead before the U 
of M was even organized. 

Things looked even darker shortly 
after the second period commenced, 
when both Hal Feinman and Steve 
Gilman were injured. Gilman 
wrenched his back and Feinman. 
whose misfortune was keenly felt be- 
cause of Charlie L'Fsperance's jaw 
injury a week ago, twisted his knee 

L'Esperance might not have been 
in tip-top physical shape, but he 
never played a better game of foot- 
ball, according to Coach Tom Eck. 
The South Hadley tailback, who had 
to fill in for Rrighton's Hal Fein- 
man, just ran wild picking up a total 
of 115 of the whole team's 271 yard? 
over the ground. In addition he threw 
most of the passes, completing the 
majority of them for a total gain of 
120 yards. 

When L'Esperance entered the fra- 
cus, under such trying conditions, the 
whole team seemed immediately ir- 
spired. Charlie took George Matur- 
nick's pass from center midway in 
the second period, fumbled the ball. 
picked it up and quickly heaved it 
to end Bill Looney, who caught i 
on the 18, raced to the six, and fi- 
nally, as he was about to be tackled, 
lateraled the pigskin to the other 
end, Bernie Stead, who easily wen!

Sunday's activities consisted of

of the impressive West Point cam-

Bus Drivers Snafu 

Commenting on the West Point 

jaunt, Col. R. H. Kvans, PlofsSBOl 
of Military Science and Tactics, said. 
'In spite of the general excellence 
of this trip, I was disappointed with 
some aspects, as I know the cadets 
were. The fact that most of the group 
missed the Saturday dress review. 
which is one thing I especially wanted 
them to see, was due to a snafu on 
the part of the bus drivers. 

Those drivers were also responsible 
for the excessive amount of walking 
which some cadets have complained 
about. I can promise that such dis- 
crepancies will not be encountered 
next year." 

Col. Kvans stated that a poll of 
opinion in sophomore military classes 
Monday morning revealed that more 
than Kd per cent of the cadets favor 
continuation of the West Point trip 
series, despite minor annoyances with 
this year's excursion. 100 per cent 
said that the lecture on the evolution 
of weapons was worth while.

can lean upon the donations of par-

At present, approximately M

time work through the Placement 
Office. And the Placement Director 

estimates that another 100 find jobs 
outside, without applying at his of- 

Although this extra work is of-

Plight of the Married Vet 

Tar worse is the plight of the 
married veteran. If his is one of the 
M families living at Federal Circle, 
his rent varies from |82 to $51.50 
per month, depending on the type of 

dwelling and his income level. The 
monthly food bill for a family of two 
never drops below $55, If there ere 
children, costs rise sharply. A family 
of four, for example, spends a mini- 
mum of $80 Ml food alone. Thus 
thfl veteran finds that his $<>() check 
is quickly gone. Nothing remains to 
cover his other absolutely essential 

He is forced to seek work. Latest 
figures reveal that of the approxi- 
mately 200 married veterans now on 
campus about 85 have found work 
through the Placement Office. It is 

estimated that 100 more have se 
Cured employment on their own else 
where. In addition many veterans' 
wives are currently engaged in full 
and part time jobs. Mr. Clatfelter, 
Director Of Placement Service, says 
that his office, fully aware of the 
married veteran's problems, always 
givsa bin preference and seeks in 

every way to obtain work for him. 
All Work. No Play 

All hours which the veteran 
spends working in this way must be 
taken from his studies and his much 
needed recreation. Hut here such 
work is a vital necessity. Either be 
earns this extra money, which is in 
fact indispensable to his survival, or 
he must discontinue his education. 
As a result, his day falls into a too 
familial pattern of work and study, 

almost no recreation, and frequently 

Very little sleep. 

Such are some of the financial 
problems confronting student veter 

ani whether married or single. Their 
reactions to this situation are a little 
uncertain. All an- eager to continue 
then- education, and the) are all 
grateful for the opportunity which 
has heen iriven them. Nor are they 
unaware that costs at this college 
are somewhat ludow average. But 
where some shrug off their diffieul 
ties an<l seem to think little about 
them, others are much more critical. 
These veterans fear that in the si- 
multaneous struggle for survival and 

knowledge, their education will he 
reduced to a hasty scrambling after 
useful facts which can be turned to 
temporary advantage. And all the 
more permanent values, which thev 
had hoped to gain, will have to be 


These latter are drawn in large 

part from the married veterans and 
those single veterans with depend 
ents. They wonder if much of their 

present opportunity is not being 

wasted, if their constant Striving 

after adequate subsistence does not 

create a fundamental unbalance in 
their college lives.

Stockbridge Notes 

By 6. II DavidHon 

A spirited Stockbridge eleven 
atoned for its last defeat, by beating 
Vermont Academy Fi-0 on Alumni 
Field last Saturday. 

Having by far its best offense of 
the year, the boys in blue pushed the 
mountain men all over the field. On- 
ly the insertion of many substitutes 
by Coach Kosakowski kept the score 
down. The entire squad saw action 
in the game. 

The final score came suddenly in 
the second half when "Red" Drake 

intercepted ■ Vermont pass and with 
tome beautiful downfield blocking, 

raced thirty five yards for the scon-, 
".lack" Sullivan split the uprights 
with a perfect kick for the conclu- 
sion. The first half ended with Ver- 
mont trying in vain for a score with 
a long pass. 

Stockbridge took the second half 
kick off and would not bt denied. 
Led by "Kelley" Ovian, who ran wild 
all afternoon, the big blue, in some 

■even plays, pushed over ■ score 

with Ovian plunging the last two 
yards. This time Sullivan missed the 

point sfter try. 

Vermont could do little against the 
Aggie line and only twice in the 
whole afternoon were they inside of 

the Stockbridge forty yard line. 
The entire Stockbridge line played 
| defensive football. Some of the 
be t blocking Of the year was earned 
out in the game, and from here on 

Stockbridge will be hard to beat. 

Drop around tomorrow when the 
Aggies play New York Agricultural 


The second baby born was Robert

Greatest Headache 
To Amherst Police 

"The ». mgle « ^'- of 

Itches to the Amherst Police De- 
partment today is the bike problem," 
says Patrolman Bill Engelman, of 
Amherst police force. 
•Of the two colleges in Amherst, 
the U of M girls are by far the 
worst offenders," he said. "Bikes 
ridden at high speed along the 
and especially in front of the 
rity houses; these bikes consti- 
tute a menace to pedestrians, espe- 
cially children. A $.">.00 fine will be 
imposed on any offender caught," 
he said. 

Patrolman Engleman also stated, 

"Some of the boys drive their cars 

to fast, and neglect to stop at stop 

and red lights. A fine is im- 

poeed on this type of offender, too." 

Be stated further that "A certain 

red jeep had better watch its step — 

it was travelling the other day like 

a hat out of — , when I saw it." 

"The student body of the U of M

the oratorio Th- Mi mah will be giv

at Bowker Auditorium. 

This is the second consecutive year

No veteran will have to pay out of hia own pocket anything for booka, auppliea, fees, <>r equip- 
ment, according to Robert I>. Hawley, treasurer of the U of M. 

A Veterans Administration regulation provides that if a school charges veterans on an other 
than customary hasis, the school assumes responsibility for paying if the total exceeds $500. 

"Since we differentiate between resident veterans and resident civilians by s:;ui> per year," 
Treasurer Hawley stated, "we are affected by this regulation.

Bee use of the inherent differences 
of opi lion among human beings, the 
Colleu an or any newspaper has dif- 
ficult pleasing even some of the 
peopl all of the time. The Collegian 
doe >wever, try to give the campus 
the ! t weekly possible within the 
limit: loni imposed by studies, an 
und led office, a restricted budget, 
and t'.e time lag between deadline 
and p dication. 

The >verall policy of the Collegian 
is con dence in the good intentions 
of oth ra. We assume good faith until 
proved otherwise. 

The primary purpose of the Col- 
legian is to present as complete, as 
object i.e, and as interesting an ac- 
count of campus events as possible. 
It is the duty of the news staff, 
headed by the Managing Editor and 
the News Editor to achieve this end. 

Complete impartiality is sought. 
What I of interest to most is the 
import; nt news. News that is of in- 
terest t > one club, one religious or- 
ganiza ion, or one fraternity is of 
less fmportaaee to us than news of 
more general interest. 

In presenting accurate coverage of 
the c- apui impartially, the Colle- 
gian favors complete equity and jus- 
tice in all campus affairs; it seeks 
to up' Id the highest standard of 

"eg journalistic tradition, and, in 

or!, ttempts to be completely ob- 
joctivi n its news coverage, applying 
the e of reason to the editorial 



Editorial opinion is not just the 
whim of the editor and associate ed- 
itor, but is shaped by the entire staff 
on principles of complete equity and 
high ethical standards. 

"Ethical standards" and "confid- 
ence in the good intentions of others" 
are not just phrases. This policy has 
netted results. A sound and fair ap- 
proach to the Draper situation has 
vastly improved the setup there. In 
this case the Collegian only centered 
the discussion and brought the matter 
to a f ire. 

Tl need for trust in oar trustee 9 
to lower tuition rates has been obvi- 
ated by the VA regulation brought 
to the open as a result of a Collegian 
article, but we feel the Board of 
Trustees would surely have lowered 
the tuition rate even if there were 
no VA regulation on the subject. 

We're not infallible. For that rea- 
son we call for student opinion in 
the Brickbats column. We petition all 
groups to help us by notifying us of 
their activities, and forgiving us our 
trespasses when we seem to neglect 

Thus the Collegian is a sounding 
hoard for all campus opinion. Apply- 
ing the rule of reason on our editorial 
pages, we sometimes take the roles of 
mediator, explainer, or of 'prime mov- 
er' as befits the situation, but the 
Collegian will consistently continue to 
act with confidence in the motives of 
all campus groups until our faith is 
proved faulty.

Tree whole-heartedly and to

mammoth student-faculty "one

the form of a bridge party, a debate 
or combination thereof. We are we]

I Library is the center ot 
intellectual activity on eam- 
npletely fireproof, comfort - 
inged, it is >ne of the fineal 

college libraries in the country. 

Yet the problems of smoking and 
talking in the library threaten to 
disrupt some of the value of this 
bailding to many of the students. 

Probably no civic library in the 
country and only very few college or 
university libraries permit smoking 
anywhere In the building, but since 
our library is fireproof, the library 
committee of ten faculty members in- 
cluding Librarian Basil Wood, orig- 
inally permitted smoking in the 
Washroom! until small fires there 
caused a great deal of trouble. Even 
now, Mr. Wood does not strongly 
censure smoking in the washrooms, 
but does not openly sanction the 

Students, however, habitually vio- 
late the no-smoking regulation in the 
entrance of Goodell Library, creat- 
ing a very untidy appearance there. 
A 36-hour period without tidying up 
left the Library steps and entrance 
exceedingly messy. 

We feel that this situation might 
be obviated if the Library committee

would opevhi permit smoking in the 
washrooms with the understanding 
that students will be exceedingly 
careful in the disposal of cigarette 
butts to reduce the fire hazard with- 
in the washrooms. The committer 
might consider allowing smoking in 
the entrance also on a trial basis 
with the understanding that if the 
entrance remains untidy and the re- 
ceptacles unused, this privilege 
would be revoked. The committee 
might delegate one room in the li 
brary as a smoking room. 

The matter of talking in the study 
rooms is merely a matter of common 
decency. Students who engage in 
protracted conversation on various 
subjects even in supposedly subdued 
tones are a menace to the sanity of 
anyone trying to concentrate. 

Here joint action on the part of 

The Crow's Nest 

by George Burgess 

We wish to take issue with the 
Springfield Republican's Sunday ed- 
ition of last week. The sports write- 
up done by a Springfield reporter, 
dry and warm in a press booth, at 
the muddy melee Saturday said in 
part that Massachusetts never se- 
riously threatened after its lone TD. 
Every time we got our hands on the 
ball it was a serious threat to 
Springfield's Muddy Maroons. In 
weather such as would try the sou! 
of a New Bedford whaling captain, 
it was, in truth anybody's ball game, 
depending to a large extent on which 
way the wind was blowing. 

All the scoring in the game was 
done downwind, and even Sisson's 
sizzling smacks never sent the ball 
upwind for more than thirty yards. 
It was the weather, as well as sheer 
fate that decided the game, and no 
one knew it better than Springfield. 
Things would definitely have been 
different if the sun had been out, 
and the week's session of winning 
play practice had had a chance to 
be used. Our team was one to be 
justly proud of last week, and for the 
fifty or so university stalwarts who 
braved the wet bleachers hoping for 
a break, it was far from a dissap- 
pointing game. 

Time and again the line staved off 
gains, the most thrilling being in the 
very last moments of the afternoon 
when Springfield failed to score 
with but three yards to go and four 
trys to make it. So next year we'll 
have three to beat on the basis of 
old wounds — Bates. Rhode Island 
anil Springfield. 

Best cheering we've heard all 
year, and by far the most spirited, 
came from the V of M bleachers 
during the p-ame. Too bad some of 
that spirit couldn't be packaged and 
sold like peanuts or raincoats at the 
Tufts game, and for all the rest to 

We're looking for announcement 
of class elections. While we don't 
suggest Sally Rand, some equally 
effective means for getting the stu- 
dents to vote should be forthcoming. 
We would like to suggest the follow 
ing system for voting: Instead of 
having just one polling place in the 
Mem Building, which seems to have 
proved too long a distance to get to 
on election day, let's have several 
polls, located strategically around 

The C-Store, Goessman Lab, Ab- 
bey. Thatcher and Butterfield should 
be convenient for everyone — with a 
Senate member acting as checker 
and guardian of the ballot box. Pe- 
haps we'd hear fewer gripes about 
who is elected to which if a few 
hundred more people would vote. 
After all, one of the things we're 
being prepared for is to be citizens 
of our country. Why not get elec- 
tion apathy out of our systems now 
here at college. What better place to 
practice democracy?

Birdseye View of Eckmen In Action 

Beat Tufts 


Never Forgets 

by Ed Shea 
(Director of Tufts Sports Relations) 


It's an old adage that an elephant 
never forgets. The Jumbos of Tufts 
College haven't forgotten the stir- 
ring 27-0 defeat pinned on them a 
year ago by the Mass. State foot- 
ball eleven. Even changing the name 
of the school to the University of 
Massachusetts hasn't affected the 
determination of the fighting Jum- 
bos to avenge the defeat of 194fi by 
whipping the Massachusetts war-

U of M Soccer Team 

Briggsmen Upset Amherst, 2-1,

A revamped University of Massa-

■core of 2 1. (>n the enauing Satui-

■'; l, to a Devens College contingent 
thai apparently was "gunning" for 
tlie visitor's scalp. Now the Bliggl- 
m< ii are "out" to avenge themselves 
against Tufts. 

The margin of victory in the Am- 
herai affair was provided by burly 
Steve Czameeki's rifle like shot in- 
to the opposition's net. 

Overconfidence of Devens 

An overconfidenl squad plus in 
ability to place the ball in scoring 
position resulted in the l T of M set- 
hack at the bands of Inspired Devens 
which tallied once in each of the 
first three periods to win handily. 

In this fracas, Weatcott, Holt, and 
Magri were outstanding on defense, 

while Al KeOUgh, who produced the 
only score for the Brijrps hooters 
played well on offense.

men from last year's squad and fail- 
ing to get additional help as most of 
our opponents have done. However, 
we are still in the running for the 
Big Six title and hope to reach our 
peak in the next game. 

They really want a winner here 
and when you lose a game, the 
wolves start howling. However, there 
is a tremendous public interest in 
football and the state is very sports 

I feel a little younger than when 
I left there, mainly because I don't 
have to worry about basketball. We 
certainly had a dismal basketball 
record last winter until I left. Any- 
way, it seems good to not have to 
worry about that bounce ball game.

Saturday will be a battle, as it al- 
ways has, ami I hope you will take 
them. There will be a couple of Okies

Corner Comments 

by Burt Kolouson 
Just reminiscing, of course, but 
in the year 1906 the old Alma Mater 
scheduled such teams as Harvard, 
Brown, Holy Cross, Dartmouth, and 
New Hampshire . . . Facts cannot be 
overlooked, however. The opposition 
piled up a total of 119 points to 33 
for the local aggregation. 

The encounter with Tufts College 
Saturday will mark the forty-second , 
grid clash in this ancient rivalry 
which dates back to 1886 . . . 

Still turning the years back, the 
highest total ever compiled by the 
favorites was 27 ... On the other 
hand, the Tufts eleven of 1926 
amassed 4f>. 

The success of the girl's drill team 
has certainly been proven. In a re 
cent game, this fan noticed the mem 
hers of the opposing team watch the 
female forms with avid interest . . . 
Perhaps a new strategy could o • 
evolved by the coaches with the fem- 
inine attractions playing a major 

Concensus of opinion reveals that 
the intramural football activities 
were successfully completed this fail 
. . . Nevertheless, it does not seem 
that the teams entering the semi- 
final round should he required to 
play as many as three games in two 
successive days. 

With the grid season rapidly 
drawing to a close, basketball will 
soon he in the limelight again . . . 
Present outfits have far to advance 
in order to achieve the record of past 
■quads, some of which defeated 
powerful teams like Holy Cross. 

Undefeated Mass. Harriers 

Coach Derby's successful unde- 
feated cross country team gained a

lines silently announced that no

As two students from Common 
wealth Circle were washing a long

heard and the floor of the Hendi\ 
Room in North College was flooded 
with boiling water. 

One of the fellows manfully shut 
off Cue overhead boiler valve, get 
ting his own clothes liberally washed 

in the process. Investigation revealed 

thai the cause of the trouble was ;. 
hole the size of a half dollar in the 
boiler near the book store. 

All machines were stopped, dis-

information: "All BendiXM out of

Stoekbridge and the New York

the game. 

The entire contest was played be

neither team made any serious 

This was a battle of punts and 
much credit is due to Smarch, who 
throughout the whole name, kicked 
the wet hall beautifully. 

The Stockbridge defense, led by 
stan Pecervieh, repeatedly broke up 
the N.V. plays. Roaherick, Swart/.,

V-t many years it has been a cus- 
tom at Freshman convocations for 
Professor Rand, head of the English 
department and author of "Yester- 
days at MSC," to give a talk entitled 
Our Living Past." During this 
speech he was wont to warn unsus-

OR this campus," and that anyone 
who felt unable to live in harmony 
with the spirit world had still time 
to withdraw.

these ghosts are and what they have

me that the "ghosts", as we 
call them, are none other than the 
spirits of our past college presidents. 
"Surely you don't expect me to 
that," I scoffed; "Who be-

Athletes Covered by Trust Fund 
In Case of Sports-Incurred Injury 

The Student Athletic Trust Fund | mural sports, and students injured 
pays for injuries Incurred in organ 
ised, supervised athletics. Mr. furry 
S. Hicks, head of the I>ept. of Ath 
letics, revealed last Monday. 

This Trust Fund is based upon 
money derived from the sale of tick- 
ets at football, baseball, and basket- 
ball games. "The size of this fund [ 
limits the amount of compensation ; 
WO can give," said Mr. Hicks, "al j 
though in most cases it is sufficient 
to cover all costs." 

"Only three students have been 
seriously injured in organized sports 
this year", added Mr. Hicks. 

The three students who were in 
lured are Bob Bulcock, Warren Gin- 
gras and Bill Haines. Bulcock, a 
football player, suffered a fractured 
elbow, and was treated at the Mercy 
Hospital in Springfield. Gingras, 
who played soccer, sustained a brok- 
en leg and is being treated by Dr. 
Radcliffe, the school physician. 
Haines likewise suffered a broken 
ankle playing soccer and is being 
treated by Dr. Radcliffe. 

The college is not responsible for 
student injuries not incurred in su- 
pervised sports. Students injured 
playing touch football or other intra 

in military activities are not covered 
by the athletic fund. The only pro- 
tection for such students is the in- 
surance policy offered th rough the 
college. This insurance covers all in- 
juries, whether incurred in sports or 

"Our policy", said Mr. Hicks, "is 
to pass on each individual case of 
injury as it comes up." "There has 
been at least one caw- in the past 
where we have been unable to cover 
full costs of injury, but in this case, 
satisfactory arrangements were 
marie with the students' parents." 
"In at least 'Ml', of the rases to date 
we have succeeded in paying fully 
for injuries," he said.

Even the most naive freshman, 
contemplating the University foot- 
ball picture this season, must have 
realized that something, somewhere, 
was wrong. 

If slender support for Maroon and 
White jrridders was not enough evi- 
dence, then- were also rumblings of 
discontent from the team itself, 
which culminated last week in the 
statement by a prominent member 
that the team had long since ceased 
to depend on student support, and 
was, as a matter of fact, playing out 
the season with much the same at- 
titude which marks the professional. 
Regardless of this attitude, we be 
lieve all teams, including the eleven, 
performed creditably this fall. 

Obviously, however, since team 
members are disturbed sufficiently 
to come forth with such a declara 
tion, student support must be reck- 
oned a definite morale factor. The 
Collegian does not pretend to under- 
stand completely the reasons for the 

witholding of this support. 

There are many indications, bow- 
ever, that the problem involves more 
than the granting or withholding of 
normal collegiate enthusiasm at ral- 
lies or games. Football, along with 
other athletic endeavor, it can not 
be denied, has long played the role 
of an illegitimate child here. A num- 
ber of faculty members are openly 
against emphasis on athletics. 

Added to this brand of opposition 
as a possible damper on student en- 
thusiasm is the dirty linen which the 
physical education department has 
been able to keep out of the press, 
but not off the campus gossip cir- 

Perhaps, if football is to continue 
in its present unhappy position, the 
game should be abandoned alto- 
gether. On the other hand, progres- 
sive leadership at the top might can- 
cel out departmental mistakes, and 
restore football, as well as other 
sports, to a place in the sun. 


When the Pilgrims held their first 
Thanksgiving feast in November 
1621, they were, no doubt, too con- 
cerned with more pertinent affairs 
to imagine that some day a great 
and grateful nation would continue 
the custom of giving thanks for its 
many blessings. 

The harsh climate and unfriendly 
environment of New England would 
have discouraged a less determined 
group. One half of their number had 
died during the first winter. 

The first Thanksgiving marked 
little more than an initial victory in 
the Pilgrims' battle of survival. Pro- 
visions from Europe arrived aboard 
the Fortune; a fair harvest had been 
gathered; and a great store of wild 
turkeys had been taken from the 

Today, 326 years after the origi- 
nal feast of thanks, a fortunate na- 
tion has far more for which it can 
be grateful. We are living in the on- 
ly great country in the world which 

has survived the recent conflict with 
the resources to resume prosperous 
near-normal ways. 

A glance at the foreign news re- 
veals by contrast how lucky we are: 
the spectre of hunger over most of 
Europe and large parts of Asia; the 
blackout of freedom and human dig- 
nity in Communist-controlled areas 
of the world; political turmoil in 
France and Italy; religious riots in 
India; a pro-longed civil war in 
China; an epidemic in Egypt. Com- 
pared to these difficulties our own 
problems seem trivial. 

A threatening world situation, in- 
flation, and the possibility of a re- 
turn to food rationing are not mat- 
ters to be taken lightly, but they 
are not beyond our control if we act 
wisely. When turkey-carving time 
comes around next week, we can 
very well dismiss our petty prob- 
lems for a moment and be sincerely 
grateful that we have so much in a 
world where so many have so little. 

Dear Editor, 

It seems strange that on a campus 
having so large a percentage of vet- 
erans there should be so little at- 
tendance and support to an organiza- 
tion founded by and for the benefits 
of these same individuals. 

The answers given on G.I. Bill of 
Rights and privileges alone would 
suffice to make the vets on campus 
realize that such an organization has 
its place here at the U. of M. For 
while the VA man may give you the 
answers according to the book, it is 
to the advantage of all concerned to 
listen to the tricks and special cases 
which have come up during the 
course of its two years of existence. 

When the feeding problems were 
brought to a head finally by persis 
tent efforts of both the Collegian 
and this organization, something 
was done about it. Perhaps few of 
us realize that the question of the 
raise in vet's tuition ua.s discussed 
and steps for action taken by these 
two instruments of student and vet- 
eran opinion. 

And yet such is the great lack of 
time and the apparent lack of inter 
est of most of the vets on campus 
that they fail to find time to go to 
a meeting held once a fortiii^ht. 

Let those whose complaints in pri- 
vate are loudest and most sincere 
voice them where they can do some 
good. (This is no ad, but a voicing 
of a feeling of disappointment.) 

An examination of the association 
as it now stands will bring to light 
the fact that the majority of the 
members let us say, Wb*A or so, are 
members of the Stockbiidge School. 
These men whose term here will be 
but two years find it worthwhile to 
air their problems and gripes, and 
yet the 4-year vets feel that they 
can trust those in charge to see they 
get a fair deal. Such did not seem 
the case a couple of months ago. 

There is no membership drive on 
for the vet's association . . . inter- 
ested members though a handful in 
number are more desirable than a 
hundred of the non-interested type. 
Meanwhile those workers will try to 
protect us all. I believe there are 
more than a few women vets here,

The Crow's Nest 

by George Burgess 

Indicts Honor Society for Rally Apathy 

We can remember back in 1942 
when football rallies were a big event 
at Mass. State College. They were 
a must for student attendance, and 
anyone who stayed in the dorm or 
library was dragged out bodily to 
attend the rally. The whole team 
was there, with the coaching staff, 
Curry Hicks, Joe Rogers and his 
jokes, speeches by Dean Machmer, 
Prexy Baker, and the traditional in- 
vocation by Mr. Lanphear to our 
honored chief Mettawampi. Man by 
man, the team was introduced to 
receive a tremendous ovation from 
a wildly enthusiastic and spirited stu- 
dent mob. 

Of this, nothing survives. For some 
reason or other, the majority of stu- 
dents now feel that such an obvious 
display of enthusiasm is too unso- 
phisticated or childish. 

Other colleges, however, with far 
more reason to be blase go overboard 
in demonstrating school spirit. Dart- 
mouth College, one of the Ivy Leag- 
uers, for example, has an unsur- 
passed degree of spirit — like getting 
A.M. to see the team off at the sta- 
tion when they play away. Harvard, 
Yale and Princeton — even Amherst 
— defy social decorum when it comes 
to rallies and fighting team spirit. 

Whatever the reason may be, ral- 
lies this year have been a dismal 
failure. Last minute preparations, in- 
competent MC's who didn't even have 
the courtesy to remain sober in front 
of the few people who did come, have 
lent what we consider to be a cheap 
shallow aura to the very idea of a 

The lowest possible level in this 
declining scale of school spirit was 
reached last Friday night, the night 
before the final game of the season, 
when not even a semblance of a rally 
was held. 

We could say the students them- 
selves were really at fault, which, 
to a large extent, would be true, but 

ure rests squarely with our esteemed 
honor societies, Adelphia and Isog^n. 
According to Registrar Lanphear, 
Adelphia has conducted all sp 
rallies for over a decade, and it can 
only be an unshakable apathy whioh 
kept them, along with Isogon, ttott 
doing as much this year. In our opin- 
ion, this apathy is an indelible black 
mark against their record of servi •§, 

Magnanimously, the two societies 
admitted their failure at the most 
crucial time we can imagine; when 
a Beat Tufts rally should have been 
the most important item on their a- 
genda. They owe a definite respon- 
sibility to the present student body 
as well as the former and future 
members of their own organizations. 

How does the football team ft 


about it? To a man, coach included 
they did not even expect a rally Fri- 
day night, because they knew the 
students were not behind them. Oat 
member of the squad to whom wt 
talked the morning of the Tufts 
game said that the team was playing 
with a kind of spirit akin to a Pro. 
fessional ball club. He said they never 
notice the stands any more, and play 
for the glory of the team, and not 
the university. 

It is a great feeling to know that 
the constant menace of painful in- 
juries, the terrific pressure of keeping 
up your marks, and nights of being 
so tired that you cannot study, are 
appreciated. It is a feeling that has 
been completely foreign to our fo<»- 
ball team this year. 

Our teams, all of them, are vitally 
important as emissaries and ambas- 
sadors of good will and favorable 
publicity, and are, thereby, a stand 
ard by which other colleges judge us. 

It is only an enthusiastic spirit, 
a type of unremitting personal oo- 
operation that will furnish the pre- 
cious "Third Ingredient" necessary 
to help make Massachusetts a uni- 
versity in more than name, and our 
football team one destined to attain 

the actual responsibility for this fail- 1 new heights in football history.

had been considered for the post of

;i~sassinated. That was in 1882, when 

M \(' was again without a president; 

io he took over again and held the 

ition until his death the following

-tige to help the new-born college 

greatly. He even got old Ben Butler, 

Governor, to send a personal mes-

Clark's Body 
■Colonel Clark was an outstanding 
figure in his day. He had once been 
reported missing in action during the 
Civil War, and returned to his unit 
just in time to see the wire his rel- 
atives had sent asking that his body 
be shipped to them. He answered it 
himself: 'Still have use for body. Will 
bring it back in person.' That should 
qualify him as a real ghost president. 
It was he who performed the now- 
famous squash experiment, binding 
a squash in a steel frame and hang- 
ing weights on it to see how many it 
would lift as it grew. That squash 
lifted 5,000 pounds, and made MAC 
and Clark famous all over the country. 

A Degree Unnecessary 

Levi" Stockbridge was one of the 
few college presidents in this country 
who was never an undergraduate 
himself. A self-educated man, he once 
underwrote the salaries of the entire 
faculty to save the college from going 
into debt and possible extinction. Levi 
had more parts of the college named 
after him than any other president 
the school ever had: Stockbridge Hall, 
Stuckbridge House (the faculty club- 
house), Stockbridge Road, and the 
School of Agriculture. 

Stockbridge and Kenyon Butterfield 
really put the college on the map; 
under Butterfield the college grew J 
threefold from 1906 to 192-X and al- 
Moat every course had the word 'agri- ! 
culture' somewhere in its name. There j 
aaa Agricultural Chemistry and Agri- 
cultural Engineering; even what is 
ww Mr. Prince's Chaucer course was 
called Rural Literature. The only 
Kiifflish major subject here then was 
'Rnrml Journalism'. 

Scientific Trend 

While Roscoe Thatcher was pres- 
ident the college became predomi- 
nantly scientific; even English was 
ified as a social science. He was 
president when the name of the school

was changed to Massachusetts State

"Are there any other ghosts around 
here?" I asked. 

"There certainly are. The ghosts 
of all men who gave their lives in 
both World Wars, and all the alumni 
who have helped give the college a 
lift on its way. I'm sure they are all 
with us today in spirit, wishing us 

Happy Spirits 

"How do you think these spirits 
would react to the latest developments 
here-the change to U of M and the 
expansion program ?." 

"I'm sure old Colonel Clark would 
be delighted. He founded Hokkaido 
Imperial University in Japan, you 
know, modeled after our school. The 
seal of that University still bears the 
inititials 'B.B.A.', which stand for his 
last words to his students as he left 
for the United States: 'Boys, be am- 
bitious.' He was a great promoter; 
once he had almost all the state legis- 
lature — 47 of them — up here on a 
special train from Palmer to tour the 
place and hear lectures on their in- 
vestment. Yes, he'd be enthuiastic. 

"The spirit of Charles Goodell 
would be quite happy over the ex- 
pansion of the Liberal Arts depart- 
ment. Goodell was Librarian and 
president at the same time once, and 
ran the college from his office in the 
library. I know Thatcher would he 
happy to see the growth of the science 
courses, and I think Stockbridge an I 
Butterfield would approve of our ex- 
pansion, though they would be con- 
cerned that agriculture might not keep 
its proper place of emphasis. I know 
that all of them, howvc ■ oul I 
want the I 'niversity to do al 1 it can 
to serve the needs of the state."

L'Esperance Plunges 
To Only U of M Score 

A Jumbo eleven from Tufts Col- 
lege invaded Alumni Field last Sat- 
urday to subdue the V of M grid- 
mi'ii in the traditional windup game 
for both teams by a MOM of 20-0 be- 
fore a chilled crowd of 5000. 

Costly fumbles by the Statesmen 
led to all three Jumbo touchdowns, 
while the Tufts backfield alliance of 
John CaUgione, July Doliner, and 
[{oh Haines ■polled dismal defeat for 

the Eekmen. 

A first quarter drive for the 
Tuftaroen started with a U of M 

fumble on their own 82-yard line. A 
march of 28 yards featuring the 
smooth clicking Tufts r e verses 
brought the ball down to the four 
where halfback Doliner carried the 
ball over on a free sweep around 
right end. 

In the second quarter, Hud Estelle 
intercepted a Tufts pan on the U 
of M S6. Bill Sweeney from th- right 
half back slot heaved a pass to end 
Bill I. Money that was good for 27 
yards and a first down. Charlie 
1/Kspeiance then threw a 19-yarder 
to quarterback Stan Waskiewicz, 
who drove down to the seven before 
being downed. An offside by Tufts 
placed the pigskin on the two, and 
two downs later L ' E s p vr a n c e 
smashed through right tackle for the 
only l T of M touchdown. 

Seconds before the half ended, the 
.1 umbos recovered a State fumble on 
the 12, and four plays later, a Do- 
liner to Calagione reverse around 
left end resulted in the second Tufts 

Ii the last period, the Jumbos con 
eluded the scoring when a double 
reverse from Haines to Doliner to 
Calagione was good for 37 yards and 
the season's final touchdown on 
Alumni Field. Doliner split the up- 
rights for the final point.

whipped the Springfield College 

Frosh, 18-6, last Thursday at 
Springfield. The contest culminated 
an undefeated season for the States 
men, whose goal line was uncrossed 
until Mat Maetozo of Springfield 
sneaked across for six points in the 
first period of this final game. 

No sooner had the contest com- 
menced than Bob D'Agostino of the 
Maroons intercepted a TJ-M pass and 
raced back to the Statesmen's 85. 
The Springfield scoring drive got 
underway at this point and reached 
pay dirt when Maetozo crossed the 
line on a quarterback sneak from the 

Having their goal line crossed for 
the first time all year must have 
infuriated the frosh, for they pro- 
ceeded to take the next kick-off and 
with sheer power plays drive down 
field. Alec Norskey shot a twenty- 
five yard pass to Marty Anderson to 
climax the drive and put the Ma 
roon and White back in the game. 

With their strong forward wall 
leading the wav, the U of M lads 
slowly forced the Maroons back to 
their own goal line and In the final 
period made a penetration to the 
five only to lose the ball on downs. 
Thev got their hands on the ball 
again, however, after an offside kick 
by the home team on the Springfield 
25. Again it was Norskey and An 
deraon who combined for the score 
with the former racing around left

raced ten yards for the score. Ander-

Hockey Candidates 

A meeting of all four-year college 
candidates for the ice hockey team

Education Building. The new coach 
will be there. 

"Best cross-country season in the 
school's history!" 

That was the boast of < t • 
Llewellyn Derby's harriers last 
after their surprising second-; 
finish in the New England Int. 
legiate race at Boston. Their out- 
standing Boston performance, sur- 
passing all previous accomplishments 
of Derby-coached teams in the 
Englands, was a fitting finale to this 
"most successful" season in v 
the U of M runners rang up six rifr 
tories with nary a defeat. 

The most creditable cross-country 
record previous to this season's wa, 
compiled by the 1934 team, which 
was undefeated in five meets. This 
aggregation finished no higher thar. 
sixth in the New Englands, how 

Not only did the 1947 Derh 
finish four places higher in the V 
Englands than any U of M team here- 
tofore, but also their 102 score wu 
far better than the previous lo« 
136 garnered by last year's harrier? 

Another jewel in the diadem of this 
fall's Derby clan was the achieve 
of three perfect scores against North- 
eastern, Amherst, and Devens, which 
was also without precedent. 

Turning t<» individual honor.-, I. . 
Clough, by winning six straight d . 
meets this year on top of five las: 
year, accumulated the longest 
secutive win streak in U of M . 
country history. In addition, he h 
the local course record in the 
meet against Devens after breal 
the college record twice pre\ 
Although his eighth-place finis: 
the New Knglands was surpassed 
1933 and 1934 by Hob Murray 
Ray Proctor, who finished to 
.and second respectively, he neverthe- 
less still rates as one of the topi: 
if not the topmost, harrier in 
school's history. 

Ed Pierce, Bernard 'White\ 
sar, Ed Funkhouser, and Paul Chan- 
nell should also receive great e 
mendation for making up one of 
best-balanced teams in years. T 
other three Statesmen, Bill H 
Ed O'Neill, and Jack Dunn, were 
instrumental in bringing about hu- 
miliatingly high scores for the op- 

Even better prospects are forecast 
for next year, since the top five 
will all be back and will be aue 
mented by a squad of freshman run- 
ners which went through this

charges for this item. Sorority bills 
for food, however, varied from $128 
to $160 a semester. Girls paid about 
$70 a semester for their rooms. When 
these two items were added to the 
tuition and the activities fees, a total 
of $275 was reached, this total being 
the largest amount on their 'financial 

Buy Food Outside 

When the question "What are your 
expenses outside of actual board 
per semester?" was asked, an inter- 
esting item was discovered in addition 
to the actual statistical information 
received. The girls revealed that, a- 
side from money spent by their dates, 
food, whether bought at the C Store, 
Sams', the Diner, or the local gro- 
ceries, cost them anywhere from $2 
to $50 a semester. The average a- 
mount spent is $15.50. Those students 
eating at Draper by far spent a great 
deal more for extra food than did 
other students. 

New Look 

Figures derived from investigation 
into money spent for clothes revealed 
that fashions and the "new look"| 
have not affected the U of M coeds 
to any great extent. The average 
amount spent for a year at school 
is $126. The amount spent by fresh- 
men was slightly higher, probably 
because of the fact that upon en- 
tering college a freshman buys cer- 
tain basic articles which she intends 
to last her for four years. It was 
interesting to note, however, that 
there was a great diversity in the 
amount spent on clothing, the figures 
running from $30 to $350 a semester. 

Other interesting factors were| 
these: One third of the girls received I 
an average allowance of $20 a month, 
while two thirds received no set al- ! 
lowance at all. This latter group j 
breaks down further into two sub-di- 1 
visions, 33'; of which work for their 
spending money, and 67^ of which 
receive money from home as they 
need it. Further, 50*7r of the coeds 
receive complete help from home, 49*^ 
partial help, and 1# no help. 40*^ 
work at school earning from $20 to 
$150, but averaging $55 a semester. 

Large Number Work 
A very large group, 79C£, answered 
that they work during the summer 

months at all types of jobs from 
soda jerking and waitressing to lead- 
ing 4-H and playground groups and 
doing office and factory work. Girl 
students earned anywhere from $100 
to $500 for the summer months, the 
average amount being $240. Wait- 
ressing, whether in restaurants or 
hotels, seemed to be the most pop- 
ular, yet most lucrative, position. Of 
those working, 57'J put their money 
toward education, \VA toward cloth- 
ing, and 10", placed it in savings 
accounts. tt£ applied their money 
toward both schooling and clothing 

A typical budget of a typical coed 
would read something like the follow-

17 Seniors Elected 
To Phi Kappa Phi 

Phi Kappa Phi fall elections which 
were formally announced today at 
the 18th annual Scholarship Day 
convocation revealed thai a total of 
17 seniors have been chosen as mem 
bars because of their outstanding 

scholastic achievement and charac- 

The Massachusetts chapter of the 
Honorary Society of Phi Kappa Phi 
was installed here in 1904. Its pri- 
mary objective is to emphasize aca- 
demic ability and personal character. 

Senior students from all depart 
ments of the University are eligible 
for election to membership provided 
the requirements of the Society are 
met. Scholastically this involves 
maintaining an H.V; average for the 
student's first three years of the col- 
lege course. Qualifying seniors are 

chosen by a special committee. 

Elected from the class of '18 for 
the fall semester are:

Three important issues will be presented to the student body 
in the form <>f referenda on the ballots December 12 when tin- 
campus elects its class officers, according to Steve Czarnecki, '48, 

president •»!' the Senate. 

1 — Shall a student council consist of members of the Senate 
and VVS(J.\ he the ruling organization on campus, meeting weekly 
together, and handling seperate problems as seperate groups? 

This proposal, backed unanimously 
by both the Senate and WSGA marks 
a new era of student government «it 
this institution in the opinion of 
many. Both Steve C/arnecki, Senate 
President, and Priadlki Elliot Karqu- 
harson, WX<!A president, expressed 
the hope that the entire .student body 
hack this move to 'set up a firmer 
student governing organization." 

2 — Shall the nickname of our ath- 
letic team he changed from Statesmen 
to Red in en'.' 

This problem was put before the 
student body, Czarnecki pointed out, 
in answer to student request for a 
"once and f<>r-al! decision on the two 
names receiving the highest number 
of votes in the Collegian poll during 
the Rhode Island r of M football 


Approximately MO votes were cast 

at that time, with Statesmen re- 
ceiving !. r i more votes thnn Redmcn, 
he added. 

3 — Shall the I'niverHity of Massa- 
chusetts join the National Student 
Association at a cost of no more than 
$.2."» per student? 

Alice Wysocki, '»x, nsa delegate 

from the I' .,f M and chairman of the 
U of M N'SA committee pointed out 
that 1!» other campuses have .already 
joined the N'SA and she plans to put 
the facts before the campus via B 
panel discus; ion and next week's

Professors Questioned 
In Cheating Problem 

A Collegian poll of professors on 
the subject of cheating brought a 
varied response, although six out of 
nine believe in making it difficult for 
students to cheat. 

Professors' attitudes ranged from 
regret at the lack of moral maturity 
which creates the problem of justi- 
fication of strict prootoring on the 

grounds of protecting college stand 


Dr. Marry < « lick : Philosophy: I'm 

agin' it. What I do is to watch my 

students carefully during quisaea and

semester that it's a bad idea ban!

Addison Standout 
In Messiah 

The Messiah was well received 
by a nea i capacity audience on I 
day night, November 21, when the 
annual Christmas presentation was 

given, featuring soloists Allele Ad 
dison, Mrs. Myron Clapp, Robert La- 
doff and Donald Read, supported by 

a chorus of 170 voices under the di- 
rection of hone Alviani. 

A bo uq uet goes to Doric for the

The 170 voices rang out strong and 
clear with no' a single phrase lost 
In the din of sopranos and basses. 
Although the voices were verv 

strong the lights and shades were

could easily have filled a much larg-

even greater effectiveness.

The wave of idealism at the con- 
clusion of World War I that brought 
the Honor System into being is not 
likely to recur in this postwar era. 
Hut the problem of cheating which the 
Honor System attempted to eliminate 
albeit with no concessions to human 
n«tun remains with us. 

With reference to cheating we may 
classify students into three cate- 
gories: those with high ethical prin- 
ciples who would never feel the slight- 
est temptation to cheat even though 
the rest of the class were flagrantly 
comparing papers or cribbing; those 
who will always cheat even at the 
• isk of severe penalties or even if 
put on their absolute honor; and the 
group between the extremes includ- 
ing those who don't cheat but feel 
temptation to do so and those who do 
cheat and feel guilty about it. It is 
this central group which suffers most 
by non-enforcement of college cheat- 
ing rules. 

Faculty members of course can be 
classified also into those that will 
vigorously punish all cases of cheat- 
ing, those who refuse to recognize 
'he possibility of violations, and those 
in between including those who pun- 
ish only obvious cases of cheating, and 
those who know that cheating occurs 
; n their classes but choose to ignore 
the fact. 

A cross-section Collegian poll of 
last spring revealed that 88T of of 
M students cheated at one time or an- 
other during their college career. 

While it is difficult to put an ethical 
•Toblem an a quantitative basis, some 
students differentiate in degree be- 
tween cheating on quizzes, cheating 
on hour exams, or cheat on finals. Un- 
der the old Honor System whereby 
'"lose who allowed others to look at 
their papers or gave answers without 
reporting the violation were as guilty 
;'.^ the receiver, the percentage of 
cheaters in this school would probably 
be much nearer 100^ than 889£. 

There are sound reasons for not 
adopting a laissez-faire attitude on 
this problem. Most cheaters, habitual 
or otherwise, advance the soundest 

mod of all: 

In this competitive world of ours, 
where marks are important at col- 
lege and for getting into graduate 
school, I may cheat to insure my true 
mark. In other words, if others are 
cheating around me, I must cheat in 

The final responsibility for allevi 
ating the problem of cheating rests 
with individual members of the fac- 

We recommend that faculty mem- 
bers adopt the suggestions of the 
Honor Commission formed in the 
early '40's to replace Honor Council. 
These include giving essay-type 
questions, giving different questions 
to alternate rows; spacing students 
one row apart if possible, proctoring 
carefully, punishing offenders severe- 
ly, and encouraging honor during 

One faculty member watches his 
classes carefully. If he notes a 
"wandering glance", he stares at the 
student during the rest of the exam, 
compares the suspected offender's 
paper with his neighbor's, and if he 
notes any striking similarity, he 
presents the suspect with the evi- 
dence and asks for an explanation 
before punishing him or her. 

This, we feel, is a much wiser at- 
titude than that of the professor who 
pointed out in this week's profes- 
sorial poll on cheating that he takes 
off 10 points on the quiz if he catch- 
es a student cheating. This profes- 
sor, who doesn't think "much cheat- 
ing goes on" in his classes hardly 
solves the problem, for it is certain 
ly worth the risk of being caught to 
pass a quiz for which one is totally 

In equity to those students who 
do not cheat, to remove the defen- 
sive argument of some of those who 
do cheat, it is up to the individual 
instructor or professor to be aware 
of the situation and to use some or 
all of the above-mentioned devices to 
correct the situation. 

While we do not discourage the 
faculty helping us shape our code of 
ethics, we do not expect it; we have 
a right to expect our faculty to in 
sure fair marks by equitable exam- 
ination conditions.

I'nderstood possibly as a press- 
ing problem, but probably not felt 
keenly on the campus as a matter 
involving the lives of millions of per- 
sons, the world food crisis looked in 
at the door of the University of 
Massachusetts this week. 

Attempting to forecast the New 
England agricultural future, Dr. 
Harry C. Woodworth, head of the 
department of economics at the Uni- 
versity of New Hampshire, speaking 
at the 1948 Production and Outlook 
Conference, suggested that what's 
ahead for the New England farmer 
is, to a great degree, dependent on 
the implementation of the Marshall 

Students would do well to consider 
Dr. Woodworth's remarks as a re- 
minder that affairs in Europe, or 
for that matter, affairs involving 
large numbers of the world's popula- 
tion, no matter where, have a dis- 
tinct bearing on world economy, and, 
hence, on the lives of all of us. 



by George Weinn 
Editors Note: The Coll, 

Dear Editor: 

So the "cute" little dolls of the U 
of M find their budget far in ex- 
cess of the $65 per month allotted 
for our heroes of World War 2! 
What a shame! How much longer 
must we "peons" listen to the moans 
and groans of vets concerning their 
insufficient monthly checks and oft- 
times delayed receipts of same? 

Armed forces veterans have been 
blessed with free education, free 
medical service, free state bonuses 
free mustering-out pay, free insur- 
ance, and many other "frees" too 
numerous to mention. But let a com- 
mittee in Congress propose adoption j 
of a bill granting but a tiny percent- 
age of such benefits to vets of the 
Merchant Marine, and listen to the 
uproar. Such legislation has, as yet, 
failed entirely to progress beyond 
the incubation stage, and from all 
indications, it never shall. (I refer 
to the recent defeat of Bill HR 2346 
and its successor which have re- 
ceived almost unanimous opposition.) 

To the average American, the 
Merchant Marine, during the war. 
was the source of fabulous fortunes 
for all its members. This is thei'- 
first, last, and only conception of the 
organization, and they will not admit 
the facts of the situation. On an 
average, men in the Navy, Marines, 
or Army with grades equivalent to 
those in the Merchant Marine ac- 
tually received a larger pay than the 
Merchant Marine. This is a fact! 
But who cares about facts? Not our 
Congressmen evidently. 

Let me briefly explain for you the 
trials and tribulations (not of Paul- 
ine), but of a Merchant Marine vet- 
eran who enters upon a college ca- 

gain admission to college — I was re- 
fused twice by this institution be- 
fore being conditionally accepted.

council should consider these ques-

course, will be dealt with by the sep- 
arate organizations. WSGA, for in- 
stance, will continue to handle the 
Handbook and women's regulations, 
and the Senate will deal with men's 
hazing as a separate body. 

But the main amount of work in 
volves men and women together, the 
campus as a whole, and, since this is 
the case, should be handled as a unit 
by a unit.

would have gotten to benefits of the

will deserve all the help you're get-

is the disregard of M. M. vets in the 
G. I. Bill, the "Blues singing" of the 
"state-side" generals, the over em- 
phasis of M. M. pay, and the unfor- 
givable disregard of previous stud-

Wote For Redmen As Team Name, Burgess Says 

I N , xt week when you go to th j coops (as one state legislator Ve- 
, ing this column with you and | cently defeated for United States 
again before you jote for the I Congress said about our buildings). 

It's high time embarrassment 
should no longer be a part of the as- 
sociation with the University of 
Massachusetts. It is high time the 
students realized that with a chang ■ 
in name, there should be a change 
in a lot of other things, especially 
anything even remotely connected 
with a state agricultural school or 
an MSC. 

School songs should be rewritten 
new ones composed, old ones discard- 
ed. New cheers that are different 
from those we learned in high school 
nth stil! others we can go the whole | should be created. New stunts for 
ay to establish permanently. ! the cheerleaders, new outfits, and a 

new name tor the football team are 
all things that we as students can 
do to nurse the wavering spark of 
school spirit back into a consuming 
fire of healthy enthusiasm. You as

reaaoni which we felt were 

ijble for lack of school spirit

Some of them we can't do much 

ibout, others we can make a start i:i, 

The first change which can be- 
ome permanent and about which we 
an do something, is this matter of 

name for the football team. We 
aaat discuss the inadequacy of the 

lame two hundred students voted for voters can do that very thing by 
lithe Rhode Island game. It is so putting an "X" beside the won!

I'e refer you to last year's Index, 
I ■ and 55. In bold face type at 
of page 54 it says STATES

mt iw ■ 

iir the opposite page, also in bold 

U type is printed: SONGS OF 

|HE STATESMEN. There are four 

them: the Alma Mater, "When 

vilight Shadows Deepen", and 

of the Valley". The fourth 

|mg is named "Statesmen". It is 

::•: particular song, and its dissolute 

\ tattofl of a college theme that 

I changed with a clean sweep, 

I entless wiping of a begrimed 

pi 'lusty slate. 

I The last line of this song, chal- 1 vard and Yale each year. It was the 
Res: "Step right up and call us same thing which fired our own stu- 
Ititesmen' you won't embarrass us | dent body with unmatched spirit at 
bit." Noble gesture, isn't it? To say | the traditional Amherst game, when, 
it even though someone calls us | no matter if they were leading by M 
itesmen, we will keep a stiff upper goals, we still cheered, and tried to 
and not be embarressed. That is take away their goal posts after- 
whole trouble with the very word wards. Tradition in our mind, is the 
to* . . . synonymous with State Col- biggest single factor contributing to 
**. MSC, and Mass. Aggie, and school spirit that can be named. We 
^mg to classes heM in chicken l have traditions here, perfectly good 

next week. By simply making a pen 
cil mark on a piece of paper, you can 
take an active part in putting this 
university back on its feet, and high 
up on the ladder of public esteem. 

Let's take a closer look at this 
name REDMEN, and what it can do 
for the University of Massachusetts. 
To begin with, let's take a look at 
that word Tradition again. Tradi- 
tion is what makes a boulder at the 
University of Vermont the most cov- 
eted and honored thing on the cam- 
pus. It is watched by an honor guard 
all night before a football game, and 
is the object for opposing forces to 
try and carry away. Tradition is the 
thing which fosters tremendous spir- 

at traditional meetings of Har- 

ones which could be used to advantage 
if they were dusted off, oiled up and 
paraded around campus. 

This theme of tradition will be dis 
cussed in all of its aspects in later 
columns, bit for now let us consider 
the tradition of the Indian. Since 
18C>8 he has stood with a bow and 
arrow on the great seal of the uni- 
versity. He has appeared in this 
form on letterheads, in year books, 
on newspaper mastheads, on ash- 
trays, glasses, beer mugs, cigarette 
cases, lighters, compacts and jewelry 
of all kinds; on pennants, hats, toy 
dogs, jackets, neckties and paddles; 
it has been pasted on suitcases, 
windshields and notebooks. It is used 
to decorate match covers, belt 
buckleB and watch straps. It has 
found its way into fraternities, so- 
rorities and dormitories. It is carved 
in relief on granite walls, and it has 
been chipped and moulded out of 
snow. It is a part of the Indian tra- 
dition at the U of M. 

Every spring, two seniors give 
traditional hatchet orations. They 
are clothed in full Indian headress 
and buckskins. They become, for a 
day, the personification of the uni 
verity's Indian tradition. 

This section of the state is par- 
ticularly rich in Indian lore. Names 
like Mount Sugarloaf, with its In- 
dian Leap, Bloody Brook and the 
Deerfield Massacre, Lord Jeffeiy 
Amherst and Roger's Raiders, all 
lend an historical background which 
strengthens the theme. Our great 
patron Chief Mettawampi would he 
very pleased with the name RED- 

With this Indian theme a part of 
the football season, our cheerleaders, 
drill team and band could carry out I 
the idea with appropriate uniforms. 
And there is the matter of a song. 
We have a new one — already written, 
but waiting for the crucial time for 
release. Its name. . . "The Redmen". 

This will be the first election day 
since we have become a new univer ' 
sity. I^et's step out with a new name 
for the football team which will he 
deeply rooted in the rich tradition of 
our university which is lurking ii 
the shadows waiting to be invited 
out. Now is the time for wholeheart 
sd support for this new name, and i 
chance to give rebirth to the tradi- 
tions of Massachusetts which may- 
well result in placing the l T of M 
on a par with Dartmouth, Maine or 
Cornell. The name REDMEN, voted 
into being may well set off a whoie 
string of chain reactions resulting 
in . . . .we don't dare prophesy the 
new heights to be gained. 

The decision is squarely in your 
hands. We hoped that next year as a 
result of your votes next week, the 
football team will be heralded on the 
Sunday Sports pages with words 
like: "Redmen Scalp Tufts 49 to 
to Finish Undefeated Season". It's 
your move. 

Food Committee Offers Suggestions 
To U of M Students In Open Letter 

Students at U of M:

dent-faculty food Committee has been courtesy. If anyone has a good rea- 
eonsiderinc student complaints about son to eat early, SM Hob Markham

conditions there. Realizing, however, j with no reason at all only causes ill 
that improvement is not the sole re- feeling and general discontent 
sponsibility of the dining hall, the I 

committee lists the following sugges- I Workers Have Orders 

tions for workers at Draper which I While going through the serving 
would go far to improve both service | line, courtesy and cooperation rank 

i high on the workers' list of desirable 

and morale. 

Last Minute Rush 
A chief source of difficulty for 
workers is the arrival practically at 
the last minute of a large crowd for 
the breakfast meal. Almost all the 
student workers have eight o'clock 
classes, and this makes it very diffi- 
cult for them to get to classes on 
time, as well as causing congestion in 
the line and delay for those who eat 
late. The serving line is open at 6:55 
during the week; yet the bulk of the 
rush comes between 7:20 and closing 
time at 7:40. If everyone would co- 
operate in getting to breakfast earlier 
there would be less ruffled tempers 
and less waiting, with a correspond- 
ing increase in efficiency. 

Cutting Into Line 
The practice of cutting into the 
line has recently assumed major pro- 
portions. Some people have been no- 
ticed climbing in windows to get a 
favorable spot. This reflects a lack

qualities. Those who feel that they 
are entitled to more than the regular 
portion only hold up those behind 
them by standing and arguing with 
the servers, who have instructions 
and must follow them. Remember that 
certain items cannot be served in 
too large portions if everyone is to 
have a share. 

When students don't want a cer- 
tain portion of food, it helps greatly 
if they will decide quickly and tell the 
servers in advance instead of letting 
them bring a spoonful of the f...»d 
over the tray before deciding not to 
take it. 

Those who smoke in line are show- 
ing discourtesy to others; nobody 
likes to eat ashes which have dropped 
into the .serving plates or tray. 

Complaints and Praise Accepted 
And while going through the line, 
why concentrate on complaints? 
There is a suggestion box for any 
such gripes and constructive criti- 
cisms, each of which is later con- 
sidered and acted upon if possible 
by the food committee and the Draper 
personnel. Whenever you find some- 
thing you like, sound off! The workers

John Field a few years later, when 
jhe married Abigail, a daughter of 

During Field's ownership in the 
Revolutionary period, Tory sympa 
thizers were confined in the house 
Field himself was of the number 
confined. Later the Tories were pa-

Stockbridge also sheltered star

Carnival Committee 
To Hold Poster Contest 

The Publicity Committee of the 
Carnival under the direction of Alva 
Forester, is attempting to make the 
Winter Carnival of interest to more 
students by a poster contest. 

The contest, which will run from 
Dec, 11 V> Jan. 7, has but one rule: 
that the posters he 22 x 28 inches, 
.but its content is left to the ingenu- 
ity of our artists. Prizes will be 
awarded for the most original and 
attractive posters, chosen by Mrs. 
Xadine Whipple, housemother of th" 
Abbey and also an art enthusiast, 
Prof. Otto of the Landscape Archi 
tecture Department and Prof. Wil- 
son of the Geology Department. 

All those interested are asked f» 
sign up on the sheets which will be

ers much disagreeable labor, as well 
as eliminating a disgusting health 

Something To Work On 
The whole matter boils down to • 
simple attitude of common courtesy, 
cooperation, and consideration for fel- 
low students. Some of the above items 
may seem obvious or trivial, yet they 
play a large part in making Draper 
an agreeable place in which to eat 
and work. Relations there should not 
and cannot be unfriendly and critical 
if improvement is to be expected. We 
must start with small things; if these 
can be improved, larger problems spa

Track Aspirants Start Activity; 
Cossar New Varsity Captain 

Five Dual Meets And 

Two Relays Slated 

Both varsity Mid freshman winter 

track practice got underway Monday 

of this week. The first Important 
.•vent to take place was the election 
of Bernard "Whitoy" Cossar as cap- 
tain of the varsity team. Whitey is 
a half-miler and was prominent on 
this fall's crosscountry team. 

The curriculum of events to be 
emphasized are the H.Vyard dash, :}•">- 
yard high and low hurdles, 440-yard 
run, 880-yard run, mile, two-mile, 
shotput, hammer throw, hitfh and 
broad jump, and pole vault. 

The first competition for the var- 
sity will be in the Knijrhts of Colum- 
bus track meet in Boston Carden 
January 24. However, the mile relay 
team will be the only representative 
in this meet. The whole varsity team 
does not compete until February 20 
in a dual meet with a new rival Holy 
Cross. The U of M met the Cross 
last year, but it was in a trianRulai 
meet with Amherst. 

The frethmnn team is expected to 
have at lend three meets, probably 
with the Amherst frosh, Williston, 
and Wilhraham. About 'l~> frosh as- 
pirants reported to Coach Derby, 
many of them with hitfh school ex-

Who is the historian for the Col-

was played between Rutgeri and 

Princeton at New Brunswick, New

the All-American Goat Team for the

the teams are .as follows: "high

at ends; Colby and St. Michaels at 
tackles; Fordham and Devens at 
guards; fumbling Massachusetts in 
the center slot; Northeastern at quar- 
terback; bigtime BU and WPI at half- 
backs; and, of course, Boston College 
at fullback.

picture next year in collegiate foot- 
ball if the present rate of criticism 
continues. It seems that some coaches

Underway This Week 

Intramural basketball, with 22 dif-

competition will be the rule rather 
than the exception. 

Under the capable supervision of 
Sid Kauffman of the Physical Edu- 
cation Department, three leagues 
have been formed. League A is com- 
posed exclusively of nine fraterni- 
ties, while classes B and C have six 
and seven members, respectively. Tru 1 
latter two groups include Creenough 
Hall and Commonwealth Circle 

which are represented by four

field by two apiece, and the Poultry 

Science Club by one team.

To Watch Voting 

To prevent the possibility of 
double voting, each person will b 
requested to leave his name when 
are ' voting. Disciplinary action will be 
honest. My main reason for the at- i taken against offenders, 
titude that I take is that it helps The newly-elected officers will 
guarantee that the student has ac- take office January 1 and will re- 
tually earned his grade, and that stu- main in office until next year's elec- 
dents who graduate from the Uni- 
versity will be of good calibre and 
will deserve their professors' recom- 

Dr. Allen Anderson, Mathematics: 
Classes crammed together are most 
conducive to cheating. We use the 
system of giving alternate problems 
to the rows, and this helps a good 
deal though there probably is still 

Prof. Doric Alviani, music: Every- 
body knows cheating goes on and 
the only thing to do is to divide 
classes into smaller sections so the 
students can use alternate seats. The 
philosophy behind this procedure is to 
protect the real workers. It is hard 
to prevent cheating when students 
have to sit on top of each other. 

Prof. J. Henry Korson, sociology: I 
don't think there is a major problem 
except in isolated oases. Most stu- 
dents are honest and intelligent 
enough to realize the consequences 
are damaging. Good preventatives are 
small classes, large rooms using alter- 
nate seats, and the use of the essay- 
type of question. 

Prof. George Goodwin, political sci- 
ence: I haven't noticed any problem 
since I haven't given any questions 
that could be copied. Small classes 
are preferable.

rhythm of Dannie Barzic and his 
orchestra provided an atmosphere of 
gaiety. An enjoyable time was had 

by all, as evidenced by the spirited 

participation of the 200 couples. For 
days after the .lance, it was stated 
thai the balloons, released in the 
course of the evening, were still vis-

The Songs Of Christmas program, 
directed by Doric Alviani, will be 
given December 17 at 8:00 at Bowker 

It will include the voices and music 
of the University Chorus, made up of 
students, faculty, and local residents, 
the University Chorale, a new and 
select group of student voices, and 
members of the University Band.

The main attraction of the evening 
will be the presentation of The Song 
Of Christ man, the Bible Christmas 
story, narrated by Prof. Frank Pren- 
tice Rand. The story is that of the 
Nativity as told in carols, songs, and 
Biblical verse. 

Background music for the narra- 
tive will be furnished by the choruses 
and band. Soloists for this selection 

will be Lee <"arr, Clement Houran, j and term projects consituting the re 
Rueith McKenney. Robert Mount, Ed-

Wysocki Explains 
NSA Membership 

"The National Student Association 
will enable every member college to 
get the benefit of united cooperative 
action," Alice Wysocki, '48, delegate 
to N'S'A, declared today in an inter 
view with a Collegian reporter. 

So far lit colleges and universities 
have ratified the constitution, and it 
has been submitted to over 400 

others for consideration. 


NSA is a non-political, cooperative 
organization T>y means of which 

member institutions may obtain and 
exchange helpful information about 
all phases of student activity. With 
headquarters at the University ol 

Wisconsin, it maintains a National 
Student C ong les s, to which each 
member may send delegates accord 
ing to its numbers. An Executive 
Committee is elected from the mem- 
bers of the Congress. 

For the local administration of 
NSA affairs, the country is divided 
into regions, each headed by a Re- 
gional Assembly consisting of dele 
gates from all institutions in the 
area. U. of M. is in the Northern 
New England region, which includes 
all New England states but Connec- 
ticut and Rhode Island, and has its 
headquarters at Harvard. Campus 
committees carry on the work of th" 
organization at each member ins'i- 


The function of N'SA is to act a.- 
a clearinghouse for the exchange of 
information about all student scho 
lastir, extracurricular, and other ac- 
tivities. To this end it gathers data 
and compiles reports about matter- 
under investigation, making these 
reports available to member colleges 
It will also collect information aboit 
specific questions for the benefit of 

every member.

This rally is the culmination of 
planning by members of the Collegian 
staff concerning efforts to stimulate

work done by members of Adelphia

ganize an inspiring pre-game rally. 
Committee members sponsoring the

Devens AVC Polls 
Transfer Students 

A bill calling for the «'Wtablish- 
ment of third and fourth year courses 
and asking the admission of qualified 
high school graduates at the Univer- 
sity division at Fort Devens has been 
introduced into the state legislature 
at the request of the Massachusetts 
American Veterans Committee. 

"More than 20,000 qualified Massa- 
chusetts high school students gradu- 
ating in June '47 were unable to ob- 
tain entrance into college," a spokes- 
man for the Devens AVC told the 
Collegian. He asked that his name 
not be used and said he got the in- 
formation from the Boston Globe and 
Boston Herald surveys. 

Wire Recorders 

In a move asserted to be entirely 

distinct from the above-mentioned 
proposed legislation, five members of 

the Devens chapter of AVC visited 
the Amherst campus Saturday night 
with wire recorders and mimeo- 
graphed questionnaires in order to 
report opinion to the Devens branch 
on this school.

When student, vote "Yes" on 
the ballot Wednesday calling for ■ 
joint student eouneil form of govern- 
ment they will be voting in a more 
efficient form of university govern- 

In expressing their approval, stu- 
dents will he sailing for joint week 
ly meetings of the Senate and W8GA 
until a constitutional committee — 
which has already started checking 
collegiate governing systems- shall 
have drawn up a model constitution 
for the new student council form of 


This future constitution will then 
have to be ratified by the student 


The short -comings of the present 
unintegiated system is that each 
body, the Senate and VYSGA. must 
approve separately matters of con- 
cern to the entire campus. Our pres- 
ent setup has been so inadequate 
that it has perennially stymied .joint 
ami efficient action on matters of 
highest importance on the campus. 

One outstanding example of the 
harmful effect of the lack of a co- 
ordinated student government is the 
student campaign to raise $30,000 
for the War Memorial Drive. This 
program has been seriously curtailed 
by the fact that there is no central 
agency to carry on the work started 
last spring. Except for the sporadic 
efforts of some clubs and the paying 

of pledges by some conscientious in- 
dividual, the drive has come to a 
near halt at roughly the half-way 

Under thp leadership of a joint 
student government, a revitalised 
campaign to reach the quota should 
be launched. Every organization on 
campus could be mobilized to further 
the drive. A definite percentage of 
the profits of every social event 
could contribute to the Memorial. 

In addition, more than . r >00 new 
students on campus could be asked 
for donations. A special effort could 
be made to speed payment of pledges 
made last year. Special events, such 
as, a campus varieties production 
and a tag day could be arranged. 

The War Memorial campaign is 
just one example of projects that 
could be more efficiently conducted 
under a joint student council form 
of government. WSGA and the Sen- 
ate will handle as separate units the 
problems of the women and men re- 

We add our voice to that of the 

Senate, WSGA, and the entire stu- 
dent body in favor of a joint stu- 
dent council form of government. 
Voting "Yes" on the ballot Wednes- 
day, and choosing the finest men 
and women for class officers, will in- 
sure an efficient, representative stu- 
dent government. 


If last week's editorial on cheating

Egg In Your Beer 

By Pol Holt 

There is a movement underway in 
certain rooms of Greenough and 
Chadbourne to form a new organiza- 
tion here. 

The name of the projected group 
is to be Delta Tau Sigma and its 
membership will be limited to Dev- 
ens transfer students who have an 
average of fil or less or are flunking 
at least two subjects. 

The constitution is still in the 
formative stage, but the aims as ex- 
pressed in the preamble include the 
desire "To foster and promote the 
further deterioration of the mind 
beyond the normal atrophy caused 
by military service and Devens ma- 

Prospective Aims 

One of the founders, V/ho declined 
to srivo his name, stated that this 
new organization would, " — perpet- 
uate the ideals and standards of 
Devens and protect the members 
from the hardships inherent in the 
late arrival of V. A. subsistence 
checks." One of the rules of DTS 
requires that, "All members shall 
be liable to giving financial aid to 
any member (s) whose subsistence 

Lately of Devens 

: check is (are) late, that he (they) 
( may not want for cigarets and liquid 

The founder explains that "liquid 
j refreshment" refers to morning cof- 
fee at the "C" Store. 

Constitutional Requirements 

Members of DTS will be required 
to wear at least one article of G. I. 
clothing (visible or otherwise) at all 
times and will greet other members 
by the offering of cigarettes as a 
pledge of brotherhood. The founder 
warned that this symbolic offering 
of cigarettes is not to be con stru ed 
as evidence of Communistic practices 
as it is really part of the "Share 
The Wealth" plan. Dues are payable 
at any time up to midnight and the 
cashier (Treasurer) will be required 
to give the member a full glass in 
receipt of payment of dues install- 

There is no limit set to the amount 
of dues a member will be allowed to 
pay. For the convenience of mem- 
bers, several Treasurers have al- 
ready been selected in Amherst and 
neighboring towns. 

Dear Editor: 

How about an investigation and 
general realization of another de- 
plorable situation on the campus? 
Monday night a meeting of the 
"Nominating Committees" of the 
four classes was held at Memorial 
Building. Out of curiostiy I went 
and observed the following: 

1. There was no check on the va- 
lidity of the individual members 
present (I was considered a repre- 
sentative merely on my attendance.) 

2. Nineteen "members" were pres- 
ent to represent the Class of '50. On 
my personal request a show of hands 
to indicate "members" other than 
those affiliated with fraternities or 
sororities revealed two members, in- 
cluding myself, representing the rest 
of the class. This despite the fact 
that every twenty independent stu- 
dents are entitled to one representa- 

8. At the outset the»e was some 
debate as to whom the present class 
officers are. 

4. Name* were presented and, al- 
though "members" were given a 
chance, there was no discussion of 

Can there be any quibbling as to 
the lack of school spirit in the face 
of these facts? 

It must be emphasized that one of 
the prime functions of a governing 
body such as our Student Senate and 
W.S.G.A. is to maintain the govern 
ing body itself in democratic form by 
insuring that elections be conducted 
in the proper manner. 

The laxity which was displayed by 
the governing body may not be the 
only manifestation of poor school 
spirit considering the independent 
student body with their negligible 
representation of two members.

Football Schedule 

Dear Editor: 

Since reading in the Dec. edition 
of the Collegian that we have re- 
placed Bowdoin College with Devens 
on the football schedule, my estima- 
tion of the athletic department head- 
ed by Curry S. Hicks has sunk to a 
new low. Arranging games with 
teams that can easily be outmatched 
is nothing but a coward's way out. 
A schedule dotted with teams such 
as Norwich, W. P. I., and Devens 
is a disgrace to the University. 

Unquestionably the athletic policy 
of the school must be changed if we 
are to gain any sort of recognition. 
The "win and loss" column reflects 
nothing if the teams comprising the 
schedule are so-called "soft touches". 

A schedule lined with substantial 
opponents would offer a challenge to 
our coaching staff. Furthermore, if 
this year's freshman team is any 
indication, the ability of our athletes 
is on par with other New England 
Universities, such as Maine, Connec- 
ticut, and even New Hampshire. 

If we continue at our present le- 
thargic pace of scheduling inferior 
athletic teams, our influence will be- 
come negligible resulting in the even- 
tual loss of possible High School tal- 
ent. The matter lies in the hands of 
the athletic department and if Coach 
Eck and his staff have any foresight 
they will urge a more impressive

by George Burgess 

Keynote of next week's program 
on campus will be student elections 
to be held on Wednesday, December 
17. Reasons for the postponement in 
no way reflects incompetency on the 
part of the Senate, but was brought 
about by an overwhelming surge of 
public opinion that elections would 
follow too soon after announcements 
of candidates in today's paper. The 
Senate very wisely went along with 
student opinion in postponing elec- 
tions until a suitable gestation pe- 
riod was accomplished, and students 
had time to think carefully about 
their votes. In so doing, the Senate 
proves its primary function on cam- 
pus, that of being representatives of 
the student body, and acting in be- 
half of their interests. 

To spark the election itself, a 
giant rally will be staged Monday 
night at eight o'clock in Bowker 
Auditorium at which time the presi- 
dents and vice presidents-elect will 
be introduced and high points of the 
referanda will be discussed in order 
that students may have a better idea 
of what they're voting for. This par- 
ticular phase of election activity is 
one which we earnestly hope will be 
carried on in future years, for it is 
the only way that adequate knowl- 
edge of and actual contact with 
nominees, as well as controversial 
questions, may be obtained. 

We have enough faith in school 
spirit to believe that this year, 
through the efforts of your news- 
paper staff, the Senate, WSGA and 
the real workers in Adelphia and 
Isogon, students at this university 
have caught on to the changing tide 
and will climb on to the bandwagon 
to ride with it to a greater height of 
school spirit and rejuvenated tradi- 
tion which will place the University 
of Massachusetts on the very top of 
the heap. 

We as those students, can do many 
things . . . first, go to the rally and 
find out what all this talk is about 
. . . form opinions of candidates, 
after seriously considering exactly 
what each one has done in the past, 
and what he or she is qualified to 
do in the future as responsible lead- 
ers in class offices.

There is no brief adequate reply to 
the cynical tenor of the editorial on 
cheating which would not be mis- 
understood. It may be that more 
blame for the failure of the former 
Honor System should fall on the ad- 
ministration and faculty than on the 
vast majority of the students. It 
may also be true that there was less 
cheating under a somewhat vacillat- 
ing Honor System than there is dur- 
ing the "non-enforcement of college 
cheating rules" today. 

Part of my opinion on this comes 
from persons on campus today who 
were here as undergraduates not as 
faculty, under the Honor System. I 
can swallow a little idealism better 
than I can the quote ". .Honor Sys- 
tem . . the percentage of cheaters in 
this school would probably be much 
nearer 10(K'r than 88%". The latter 
looks like the unsupported insinua- 
tion of a hopeless cynic or a fanatic. 

When the faculty pledge card for 
the War Memorial drive arrives I'll 
try to keep my "idealistic" remem- 
brance of some fifty human and fal- 
lible but decent and honorable form- 
er students, and I'll try to forget the 
tenor of the Collegian editorial! 

Ofttimes statements are made 
when dealing with one topic which 
are apparently meant to be forgotten 
when dealing with another topic! I 
cannot believe that this can be done 
too often in a "free and responsible

(Editor's note: There are some 
ideals left in this world. Dr. Ross. 
But as a practical (not fanatical) ap- 
proach to the problem, we directed 
the editorial against lackadaisical 
teachers to provide for the middle 
group of students — the very same 
group that caused the death of the 
honor system. 

This group includes students that 
cheat and feel guilty and those that 
don't cheat but are tempted. The com- 
parable professorial group includes 
those who recognize the existence of 
cheating and are apathetic, and those 
who punish only obvious offenders. 

We heartily commend those pro- 
fessors (Dr. Ross uses the honor 
system) who use a positive approach 
to the problem. Either putting a" 
the responsibility on the students via 
the honor system or pragmatically 
using various devices to minimize 
temptation would be better than * 
professorial laissez-faire attitude.

Nat'nl Symphony 
Loudly Applauded 

by Ruth Raphael 

The National Symphony Orches- 
tra, presented by the University of 
Massachusetts Concert Association 
Saturday, December »'», in the Cage, 
made the headlines once again for 
the University of Massachusetts by 
being the first of the leading major 
lymphony orchestras to present a 
concert for an Amherst audience. 

I'nder the dynamic leadership of 
Hans Kindler, the orchestra opened 
program with Overturn, Mar- 
rtniie of Figaro by Mozart, and the 
aiiilience received it with warm en- 
thusiasm, particularly since the or 
chestra performed it with spirited 
and flowing rhythm. 

The main part of the first half of 
the program consisted of Symphony 
in D Minor by Franck, one of the 
nmst frequently played of all sym- 
phonies. Here, particularly in the 
third movement, the bouquets un- 
questionably belonged to the wood- 
wind section which performed with 
brilliance and clarity. 

Don Joan Unorthodox 
Following the intermission, Mr. 
Kindler led the orchestra in what 
was considered by many to be the 
most striking piece in the program, 
that of Richard Strauss' Don Juan. 
Although first considered a "tumult" 
hy numerous critics because of its 
unorthodox style and "modernity", 
it has become one of Strauss' best 
liked compositions. The last number 
on the program was Prelude to Act 
I, Die Meistersinger by Wagner, 
noted for its contrasting themes of 
vigor, lyric, and pomp. 

The encores included Hungarian 
linnet's No. 1 and So. 2 by Brahms; 
Polka from The Golden Age by Sho- 
stakovich, with its captivating whim- J 
sy; Fandango from the L'Arlexienm 
Suitr No. 2 by Bizet; and Prelude to 
<)n Third Act of Lohengrin by Wag- 
ner. It was during this portion of the 
program that Mr. Kindler broke 
away from his austere dignity and 
gave the audience a glimpse of his 
sincere and informal wit by reassur- 
ing the audience that the "sour notes 
are correct" in the Polka. 

Mr. Kindler's superb leadership 
was enhanced by the fact that he 
conducts without the aid of a score, 
and is therefore able to devote his 
complete attention to the members 
of the orchestra and to the proper 
interpretation of the music. 

For the first time in any college 
appearance, Hans Kindler conde- 
scended to play, not one, but five 
encores. At his appearance before an 
avidly enthusiastic audience at 
Smith College, five years ago, he 
simply bowed graciously to the wild- 
ly applauding audience, but — no en- 
core. He ended his concert that night, 
a s he did here, with a Wagner se- 
lection. Afterwards he commented, I 
"What can we play after Wagner? 
Th'-re simply isn't anything." 
However, even though he ended 
Wagner's Prelude to the first 
act of "Die Meistersinger", he went

Campus To Enter 
Bridge Competition 

Entries for participation in the 
1948 National Intercollegiate Bridge 
Tournament are now being accepted, 
it was announced recently by Nelson 
B. Jones, Director of Faunce House, 
Brown University, and Chairman of 
the Intercollegiate Bridge Tourna- 
ment Committee. 

Invitations to compete in the event 
have been sent to the authorities of 
more than 300 institutions accredited 
by the Association of American Uni- 
versities, of which this university is 
.a member. 

The closing date for entries is De- 
cember 20, 1947, Mr. Jones empha- 
sized, and added that from present 
indications the scope of the tourna- 
ment will exceed last year's field of 
12fi competing colleges. 

Open only to undergraduates, the 
1948 Tournament is a duplicate Con- 
tract Bridge Event. Each competing 
college selects, by its own method, a 
"varsity" team of eight — four pairs 
— to play a set of 18 prepared hands. 
These hands are sent to the colleges 
and returned by mail. After scoring 
by a recognized bridge expert, the 
16 highest ranking pairs are invited 
to the final round to be held at the 
Drake Hotel. Chicago, where the fi- 
nalists will be puests of the Tourna- 
ment Committee. 

The finals will take place on April 
23 and 24, 1918, and the expenses of 
the finalists, including traveling and 
living in Chicago, will be assumed by 
the Committee. 

Assistant Professor Harold Smart, 
Economics Department, is in charge 
of the campus tournament this year. 
Students interested in participating 
should contact Warren Gingras in 
the Collegian office.

made a comeback on this cam]) 31 
after eleven years' absence. 

About fifty-five men are trying 
out for varsity hockey, which Started

lack of practicing facilities here. A

Springfield game promises to be one 
of the highlights of Winter Carnival 

Two alumni, Uuss Needham and 
Ralph Stedman, met with the Joint 

[nter-Collegiate Athletic Committee 
and instigated the return of this 
winter sport. 

It was because of the lack of pret- 
ties facilities that hockey was 
dropped from college athletics in the 
first place. The water in the collet." 
pond contains a large amount of cal- 
cium chloride, which prevents it 
from f re eling over very well at the 
edges with the result that it was 
dangerous for a truck to plow off 

the snow. 


U of M Relaymen Will 
Meet Amherst Quartet 
In Informal Race Today 

The U of M winter track squad 
entered its second week of practice 
with Coach Derby's immediate at- 
tention focused on the formation of 
a relay team to participate in the 
Knights of Columbus and B.A.A. 
track meets in January and Feb 
maty. As an early test of ability, 
the relaymen. both varsity and fresh- 
men, will have an informal competi- 
tion with Amherst this afternoon. 
Each man will run only one lap. 
Leading candidates for the varsity 

quartet so far are Louie Clough ami 
Captain Whitey Cossar, both hold 
overs from last winter's team which 
was victorious in the B.A.A. meet. 
Ed Funkhouser, Don Allen, and 
Chris Yahnis. Paul Channell, one of 
the cross-country leaders this fall, is 
another possible candidate. Funk- 
houser and Allen were on last win- 
ter's "B" relay team while Yahnis 
was a quarter-miler for Koxbury 
Memorial High before the war. 

The freshman squad has increased 
to a total of about 10 aspirants. Out- 
standing among the relay candidates 
have been Kay Willis and Phil Roth. 
The first meet for the frosb has been 
definitely scheduled for February 18

Students Attend Talks 

A l T of M delegation of the Inter- 
national Relations Club, led by Dave 
Burres, President, participated at 
the International Relations Confer- 
ence at AIC, Springfield, on Dec. - r > 
and 6. The conference was backed by 
the Carnegie Institute, and organized 
by the AIC host chapter into round 
tables on US foreign policy with re- 
spect to Argentina, China, Palestine, 
and Germany. 178 delegates from 
39 colleges and universities from 
New England were present. 

That the resolutions of the round 
tables were idealistic was admitted 
by Wallace Kravitz of AIC, presi- 
dent of the Conference, who also as- 
serted that the cold hard realism of 
our present national policy could 
well afford an injection of counter- 
balancing liberalism. 

The resolutions of the convention 
will be reported at the next meeting 
of the International Relations Club 
by the four delegates, Paul Gagne, 
Ralph Fishman, Shirley Better, and 
Jewel Kaufman.

Student - Faculty Board 

A Student- Faculty Planning Com-

school of Home Economics since last 
April. The Committee, the only one of 
its kind at the U of M, is composed 
of eight students, two alumni and two 
faculty members. 

During its short period of exist- 
ence the committee has already 
helped initiate several changes in the 
school curriculum. Five new courses 
have been added to the schedule, some 
of these as a direct result of the work 
of this committee. Two of these 
courses are for non-majors: clothing 
selection and simple construction, and 
food preparation and meal planning. 
These courses will begin next year 
unless there is a demand for them

matter will be reconsidered. 

The three new courses for majors 
are child nutrition, applied dress de- 
sign, and principles and practices of 

The student - faculty planning com-

school assemblies which are held pe- 
riodically. These assemblies are held 
to give the students a broader outlook 
into their major field and the voca- 
tional opportunities available.

In general, the student-faculty plan- 
ning committee hopes to accomplish: 
continued close cooperation between 
student and faculty, greater under- 
standing of home economics by the 
general public and by the University 
campus, and consideration of present 
curriculum and future expansion, as 
well as realization of the challenge 
and opportunity of home economics 
here and abroad. 

Thirteen departments of home eco- 
nomics in the various New England 
colleges and universities have ex- 
pressed an interest in the plan. How- 
ever, the idea of a student-faculty 
planning committee is applicable to 
all departments. 

The members of the student-facul- 
ty committee are: Dean Helen S. 
Mitchell and Miss Mildred Briggs of 
the Faculty; Katherine O'Brien Es- 
selen '36 and Marjorie Brett Day '46 
of the Alumni; Romaine Ash '48, 
Barbara Nahlovsky '48, Georgia Per-

Approximately 500 couples danced 
to the music of Gene Krupa, world 
famous band leader, who, during the 
dance, gave a half hour specialty 
show featuring the drums. 

Attendance was larger than last 
year because of the spaciousness of 
the gym lent by Amherst College. 
"Amherst College bent over back- 
wards in cooperation with us," Ma- 
jor Parker said. 

Militaristic effect was added to by 
the two armored cars in front of the

From seven questions on an exam we 
count the three best of each student 
80 points, his worse four 10 each, add 
all points and divide by KM). However, 
the student never sees a numerical

I'xanis are corrected question by 
question on a comparative basis, with 
the best answer receiving 10 points. 

Dean William Ifachmer emphasized 
that grades should not be given too 
much emphasis by either students or 
faculty. "Mastery of the subject i; 
what counts," he said. "Then the 
grade will take care of itself." 

The Dean stated that although he 
himself did not favor grade deduc- 
tions for absences, under the present 
system nf compulsory class atten- 
dance it must be used for disciplin- 
ary purposes. He added that the stu- 
dent, spends only a relatively small 
portion of his total study time 
in classes; it is not much to ask that 
he be regular in attendance. 

This regularity, he said, is valu- 
able in preparation for the student's 
future career and personal life, where 
punctuality and dependability are im- 
portant. No student can afford to miss 
classes if he wants to get the most 
out of his subjects. "If everyone 
could pass his courses without going 
to class," he concluded, "why have a 
University at all? It would be just 
a glorified library." 

Denounce Method 
Of Nominating 

Petitions circulated in men's dor 
mitories last Tuesday evening 
claimed Inadequate machinery set-up 

to conduct proper nomination of can 
didates for class elections, and asked 
for postponement of voting. 

The petitions also claimed that 

members of the nominating commit- 
tees were not properly certified. 
Questioned on these charges, Ste 

phen Ciarnecki, president of the Son 

ate, declared that it was not tie' 
duty of the Senate to organize the 
independents, and that as far as h.' 
knew, the fraternities were not over 
l (presented. 

At deadline time, the elections 
were scheduled to go on as planned.

Lincoln Moody, housing assistant. 

Plana are in progress for the

The annual Production and Out- 
look Conference, held on campus last 
week, was attended by over 200 
farmers and representatives of farm 
organizations. A good many of the 
Stoekbridge students who attended 
the various meetings gained valuable 
information, and will be called upon 
to give reports of the different phas- 
es of the meeting, in the classrooms. 

The conference consisted of com- 
mittees representing the segments of 
the 180 million dollar Massachusetts 
farm industry. The reports given by 
these committees reflected the pro- 
gressive trend being shown by the 
Bay State farmers, who are faced by 
the fact that Mass. farm earnings 
have increased only 18798 above the 
'.'{!) level as compared to the 246' ! 
for the country as a whole.

tinction of being the first of its kind

Additional Candidates To Be Named To Ballot Jan. 14 

Elections will be postponed until January 14 !

The course of student government came 
t„ a crossroad last night in the Senate 


One way leads to the revival of dormant 
Kbool spirit. The other way could lead to 
undemocratic misuse of democratic power. 

The Senate very wisely agreed last night 
;,, postpone elections if class officers in 
order to allow the Student Action Com- 
mittee time to nominate additional candi- 
dates for class officers. 

This decision should mean a new era in 
cooperative campus effort. If unwisely 
handled, it could mean near-warfare be- 
tween fraternity and non-fraternity ele- 

We believe that the organization of the 
Student Action Committee will help arouse 
the campus out of its present lethargy. 
But standing as it does for democratic stu- 
dent government, the committee must make 
sure that its results are also democratic. 

We know the results will be democratic 
if the entire student body acts in the best 
interests of the U of M. 

The Senate has made an earnest effort 
to be perfectly fair in this new develop- 
ment, and we wholeheartedly concur with 
their decision. 

We urge the non-affiliated students to 
choose the most capable candidates to add 
to the present list of nominees, and we call 
on the entire student body to elect the best 
men and women for the job. 

A.R., C.R., E.C. 

"Inasmuch as nominations were not con- 
sidered closed," a Senate statement re- 
vealed, "we recognize the validity of claims 
of the Student Action Committee that no- 
minations for class officers were not com- 
pletely representative, because of the fail- 
ure of the non-affiliated students to organ- 
ize prior to nominations." 

In order to make the ballot more com- 
pletely representative, new nominees will be 
added to the present slate by procedure 
described below. 

The Student Action Committee revealed 
that all dormitories will hold organiza- 
tional meetings this weekend, at which 
time they will elect delegates to a nomi- 
nating committee. 

This nominating committee will meet 
under Senate supervision in Memorial liall 
at 6:45 p.m. Monday, December 15 to nomi- 
nate additional candidates for class officers. 
These candidates will be announced at the 
election rally later Monday evening at 8:00 
p.m. at Bowker Auditorium. 

"Standing for democratic student govern- 
ment," the committee announced that "the 
purpose of the additional nominations is 
to provide more adequate representation of 
the entire student body on the ballot for 
class officers" 

Members of the group who met with the 
Senate last night include: 

Richard Andrews '50, Kevin Barlow '50, 
Jack Betterman '48, Fred Chase '50, Oscar 
Doane '50, Paul Doherty '50, Bob Lowell 
'49, Louis Robinson '49, Chet Thompson

by Koslyn Cohen 

With Christmas Iom than two weeks 
away, Santa ClatM decided to send a 
enger to Federal Circle just to 
hear what the kids had to say. 

Jim mil- Trefethen, . r >' 2 , too busy 
sliding down the snow in his iled to 
be bothered, exclaimed in an off 
hand tone, "Santa knows my name 
already. I told him in the Store. I'll 
see him down street and get my toys 
anyway." That was that! 

Harold White, Jr. Ill, Jimmie's 4% 
year old playmate, was much more 
enthusiastic. He stoutly declared, 

"Aw! Santa can see anywhere. I 
want a toy -team shovel .and ■ foot- 
ball drum. He knows that I haven't 
been too bad." 

Diane Derosier, selected as Miss 

I of M of 1!MJT last year, sadly re 
marked, "Santa told me to go to bed 
early." Her little brother, Mike, 
(jointed out a paper banging on the 
kitchen wall, which held the nai 
of each family member along with 
some check marks. ' Kach check means 
a present", Mike boasted. " We >rct 
one everytime we behave. F have five 
checks and Diane's only got two!" 

"Three and one month old" Alan 
Sigafus was found SBbmerged in an 
arm chair scanning the evening news- 
paper. With the Wisdom of his age, 
Alan explained, "Santa will come to 
see me Only when the snow is deep 

enough for his sled. I wont wait up 
for him 'cause it's s long ride from 

the North Pole." 

Expressing the hope «,f all Federal 
Circle children, Alan Wistfully mur- 
mured, "When we get a hous of our 
own. we'll get a big fireplace and all 
bang our stockings up."

Saint Nick Sends Messenger To Federal Circle Homes 
To Find What Class of 1967 Wants For Christmas 

by Roslyn Cohen 

With Christmas less than tun weeks 
away, Santa Claus decided to send a 
enger to Federal Circle just to 
hear what the kids had to say. 

Jimmie Trefethen, V-, too busy 
sliding down the snow in his sled to 
be bothered, exclaimed in an off 
hand tone, "Santa knows my name 
already. I told him in the store. I'll 
see him down street and get my toys 
anyway." That was that! 

Harold White, Jr. Ill, Jimmie's 4 '2 
year old playmate, was much more 
enthusiastic. He stoutly declared, 

AW! Santa can see anywhere. I 
want a toy -team shovel and a foot- 
ball drum. He knows that I haven't 
been too bad." 

Diane Derosier, selected as Ifiai 
I of M of 1IMI7 last year, sadly re 
marked, "Santa told me to go to bed 
early." Wor little brother, Mike, 

pointed out a paper banging on the 

kitchen wall, which held the names 
of each family member along with ; 
some check marks. ' Each check means 
a present", Mike boasted. " We get 
one everytime we behave. I have five 
checks and Diane's only got two!" 

"Three arid see month old" Alan 
Sigafus was found eobmerged iri an 

arm chair scanning the evening news- 
paper. With the wisdom of his age. 
Alan explained, "Santa will come to 
see me only when the snow bj deep 
enough for his sled. I won't wait up 
for him 'cause it's ■ long ride from 

the North Pom." 
Expressing the hope of a )i Federal 

Circle children, Alan wi-tfully mur- 
mured, "When we get a hom of our 
own, we'll K et a big fireplace and all 
hang our stockings up."

We think that joining the Nation-; 
al Student Association would be a | 
wise move for the U of M. 

As outlined on the front page, the 
NSA has an extensive program 
planned under a democratic consti- 
tution. There is much potential good 
an organization such as this can do 
on a regional, national, and inter- 
national level. 

Any democratic organization will 
naturally represent the opinions of 
its members, and when this school 
joins hands (on an educational level) 
with Smith, Mount Holyoke, and the 
80 or so other colleges and univer- 
sities that have already joined, the 
NSA can ultimately prove to be the 
first real active, democratic inter- 
collegiate organization. 

Alice Wysocki, U of M represent- 
ative to the national convention of 


NSA, informs us that Communist 
sympathizing groups as well as other 
partisan groups sought affiliation 
with NSA, but were only allowed to 
cooperate with NSA within the NSA 

Taking into consideration the vast 
advantages to be derived from join- 
ing the organization and the fact 
that Communist influence in it is 
negligible, we think that it would 
distinctly benefit us to become as- 
sociated with the NSA. If we as 
members find Communistic elements 
or radical tendencies in the organi- 
zation, we can do ourselves and the 
nation a much greater service by 
fighting them from within, not run- 
ning away. Such a program will 
prove that the U of M is worthy of 
the name university. 

Banal Bickering 

Dear Editor: 

The present facetious bickering 
between their regular University 
men and those who transferred from 
Fort Devens is, to my mind, defini- 
nitely childish, so foolish in fact, 
that I thought it about time to ex- 
press my sentiments of the entire 

I fail to see any reason why the 
regular University students should 
think Devens men have been allowed 
special privileges or why these Dev- 
ens men should think that they be 
allowed these special privileges. 

Given a normal period of psycho- 
logical readjustment, Devens men 
will fit into the accepted integrated 
scholasic pattern and, later, this 
present banal bickering will cease. 

I strongly recommend that all ap- 
plicable parties forget their selfish 
interests and think forward to such 
a time as other men who will trans- 
fer from Devens. Why harm their 
chances of acquiring an education 
by passing your childish antipathies 
to them. 

Also, for the record, when these 
I 'evens men transfer here, many 
with biased antipathies, someone in 
the administration should see to it 
that there is a special convocation 
for them so as to aid and supple- 
ment their knowledge during their 
period of stressful readjustment. By 
giving them a hand over the rough- 
er spots, conditions will be easier all

were giants in those days," as at 
least one professor will be only too 
eager to tell you. 

I marvel at your reasoning that 
emphasizes the traditions of a Uni- 
versity that has not celebrated its 
first anniversary. Whence came 
these traditions, if not from a long 
list of "College" men extending back 
beyond the start of Professor 
Prince's teaching career, if such a 
thing seems possible. Forget ye not 
that names like Patterson, Butter- 
field, and Stockbridge are names to 
conjure with. Consider ye that Jan- 
us, with one face backward turned, 
yet heralds coming glory.

The addition of eleven new candi- 
dates to the list of nominees for class 
offices by an Independent nominat- 
ing committee this week has made 
the ballot more representative of the 

Although the Independents have 
been debating going out of existence 
once the class elections and the Sen- 
ate elections which will follow are 
over, we hope that this group will 
continue its drive against campus 

An active Independent organiza- 
tion need not limit itself to political 

questions. Set up on a house basis, 
it can run dances and other social 
functions in dormitory recreation 
halls. On a campus basis, it can put 
its strength behind every move to 
benefit the entire University. 

The immediate objective of the In- 
dependent organization and the Stu- 
dent Action Committee should be to 
get everyone out to vote for the per- 
sons best qualified for the job. A 
long-term objective should provide 
for a wide participation in all other 
University activities. In this light, 
the week's political activity has ac- 
complished a worth-while end. 

Saturday Exercising 

To the Editor: 

Webster's definition of the word 
gymnasium is as follows, " . . a place 
or building for athletic exercises." 

Well, in a sense our gymnasium 
fits the definition of our esteemed 
friend, Webster, with but one omis- 
sion. Uucky is the man who finds en- 
trance on any Saturday morning or 
afternoon. Lucky is the man who 
finds the door unlocked. 

Fair Examinations 

To the Editor: 

The student prizes most his 
grades, for they are the symbols of 
his whole academic effort. Both stu- 
dents and instructors are aware 
when fairness is or is not ex- 
ercised in the determination of 
grades. But the determining effort 
is made by the instructor, and in 
j order to perform this task justly, he 
must continually be open to self 
examination in this regard. The mar- 
gins which terminate the college en- 
deavors of freshmen and sopho- 
mores are usually slender ones. The 
value of the following proposed 
guides for the foundation and con- 
duction of quizzes and examinations 
is so obvious they appear to be of- 
ten overlooked: 

1. Clear and unambiguous state- 
ment of each question. 

2. Allowed time to read and an- 
swer each question carefully and 
check back upon completion of the 

2. Fairness in grading. 

This is not a plea for easy ques- 
tions and high marks. Nor should 
marks be a focus of competition for 
which one side favors a reduction 
and the other side a raise. When the 
highest measure of an instructor's 
virtue as an instructor is manifest, 
grades and examinations are no 
longer a source of anxiety. This high 
measure is perhaps the capacity to 
rouse the student mind to stimulated 
and self-sustained thought in the 
field which the course considers. It 
is certainly not the ability to trans- 
fer a profuse amount of information. 

Dr. Alfred North Whitehead in 
"Aims of Education" writes, "The 
merely well-informed man is the 
greatest bore on God's earth." Dr. 
Whitehead continues to tell us that 
the student should be introduced to 
a few principles and then shown

Professor of music Doric Alviani 
is the central force of the energetic 
whirlwind which is keeping alive 
the blinking spark of school spirit at 
this university. It is because of his 
unceasing effort! in the field of mu- 
sic, which have so strongly contrib- 
uted toward student morale, that the 
Coll<!ii<ni presents Mr. Alviani with 
this sincere "well done, carry on" 

The University Chorus was cre- 
ated by Mr. Alviani for the purpose 
of presenting any music loving stu- 
dent, regardless of vocal abilities, 
with an opportunity to participate 
in choral singing. The recent presen- 
tation of the Messiah was a definite 
indication of the merits of this or- 
ganization. "Songs of Christmas" 
presented last night at Bowker Audi- 
torium adds another success to the 
record of our newly created campus 
chorus, and to the many triumphs 
of "Coach" Alviani. 

Bitter pills which he must swallow 
are the perennial, stigmatic criti- 
cisms voiced by self-named critics 
which are inevitably found an-ng 
all college audiences. However. "Mr. 
Alviani finds that the effort" of 
many of the students with whon he 
works have more than a neutrn'' ; ntr 
effect on whatever discm'' ; ne 
comments are directed at his wo-k.

Two Up! One Down! 

To the Editor: 

I have just finished reading the 
Collet/inn of December 4th, and 
would like, from the limbo into 
which all graduates go, to toss two 
bouquets and one brickbat. 

First, a bouquet to Editor Komm 
for his editorial on cheating. This, 
Mr. Itomm, was masterful handling 
of a delicate situation. Even though 
I must be included in your 88*/'r, I 
feel that you have placed the respon- 
sibility for the prevention of cheat- 
ing squarely where it belongs — on 
those who give the examinations. 
Having given examinations myself, 
I feel that the instructor who does 
not prevent cheating has no respect 
for his own work. 

Another bouquet to my former 
classmate, George Burgess. The 
name Redmen seems to me an ex- 
cellent title for the school's athletic 
teams. At this writing the name has 
been accepted or rejected, I know- 
not which, but a bouquet for the at- 
tempt if not the accomplishment. 

However, Mr. Burgess, I take ex- 
ception, and toss a brick, to your 
desire to expurge from memory the 
ghosts of "Aggie" and "State". 
These ghosts are not pale wraiths of 

later life. 

Fair examining procedure is uni- 
versally approved but not universal- 
ly practiced. Instructors will be 
receptive if properly appealed to by 
a sufficient number of students. The 
fear of failure is a shabby device 
for goading students into hard work. 
Let students show their will to learn 
and instructors show their imagina- 
tions in the elimination of this un-

Yellow- Journalism? 

Dear Editor: 

Journalism in this country has, on 
the whole, sunk to a fairly low level. 
That is an accepted fact. But if then- 
is one place that some decent stand- 
ards should be maintained, that 
place is in a college newspaper, a 
paper written by men and women 
of college level intelligence for dis- 
tribution among the top five per 
cent level of the citizens of this 

When the editor of such a paper 
starts putting in cheap and irrespon- 
sible editorials and notes, it is time 
for a change. 

The editorial on the Phys-Ed de- 
partment on Nov. 20 smelled of the 
cheapest yellow journalism. If the 
omniscient editor knows what is 
wrong in the department, let him 
say so in so many words or let him 
maintain silence. Common decency 
alone dictates that a newspaper pub- 
lish only concrete charges in order 
that the persons so accused can de- 
fend themselves. I might say that it 
is gentlemanly conduct to do so, hut 
am afraid that the editor would not 
understand the meaning of the word, 
since he obviously is not one. 

The note following Dr. Ross's let- 
ter of this week is another indication 
of poor taste and ignorance. The edi- 
tor was not here during the working 
of the honor system, and has not the 
least idea of how it worked and why 
it failed. It worked in that a major- 
ity of the students felt a moral re- 
sponsibility for their actions. It 
failed because of non-support from 
the administration and some of the 
faculty members. Perhaps the pres- 
ent system is more practical, with 
its assumption that the students, who 
are the future leaders of this society 
of ours, are not to be trusted. 

Fantastic as it may appear to the 
editor, the honor system was a defi- 
nite improvement over the present 
system, because it assurred that the 
students had some honor. Or perhaps 
the honor system can no longer 
work on this campus because the 
caliber of the students has degener- 
ated to such a low level that there 
is no honor and decency left among 
the students. I should hate to think 
the last, but if the Collegian is in- 
dicative of the student body, per- 
haps it is true.

vealed that students who hold tempo- 
rary commissions in the Army of the 
United States and who are presently 
enrolled in the ROTC may continue 
in such enrollment if they imtnoi 
ately resign from their comnvs-

Pear Santa, 

Recently a stiay alcoholic of our 
acquaintance suggested that we write 
y.u a letter, telling you just what 
we wanted for Christmas. After a 
few more d-inks, we agreed that 

I was a capital idea. 

Then we called the roll, in order to 

up some gift suggestions and 

to eolleet the 3.():i necessuy foi 

a posta-'o stamp. We got a list of 

suggestions but you will notice that 

that the letter is being sent collect. 

The list follows: 

(1) Some gold plated football 
stands for our concert hall down In 
the Cage. This, we feel, would lend 
a great deal of classical atmosphere 
to the place and enable us to attend 
these events in the approved manner. 
y -,•'♦ "'~ n brin«? along «onv 
•nrn s which could be distrib- 

cheering loudly and in various other 1 Lab 
ways redeeming their much maligned 
school spirit. Kveryone seems to 
think that this would put our school 
on the Culture map, and turn us, 
overnight, into an institute of higher 

When you drop around to our 
house to make these deliveries next 
week, you should not waste your time 
looking for stockings in which to pu' 
the gifts. At the moment, we have 
only two socks, and we are wearing 
both of them. (It's that darned Va 
again, you know.) And seeing that 
you are coming early on Christmas 
corning, you may as well haul along 
a can of tomato juice and a bottl 
f ketchup and some ice cold water 
will also do very nicely. Anything. 
Because we are going to need it bad- 
ly when we wake up. And whatever 


the rhododendron garden, 
became a little strained last fall. 
This spat accounts for the rather 
potent aroma which circulated 
French Hall. 

It seems that Petunia, a veteran 
of the Wild Life Lab's family of 
Mephitas negra, objected to the en- 
forced campionship of one Maryland 
My Maryland, a southern Importa- 
tion of the same species. For the 
benefit of the uninitiated, Mep'ii'.as 
negra refers to the common eastern 

My Maryland was brought to the 
campus by one Timberlake of Kappa 
Sig. The fraternity thought that the 
little rascal would make a swell 
mascot. My Maryland refused to co- 
operate however, and he (or she, 
whichever the case mav he) WaU 
turned over to the wildlife depart- 
ment for gentling. 

As soon as the stranger was placed 
in Petunia's cage chemical warfare 
on a large scale broke out. AlthoUffl 
Petunia was supposedly descents! 
members of the department soon 
wind of the fact that the job was 
not complete. 

Upon discovering that Petunia had 
not been successfully deskunked and 
is quite capable of protecting herself, 
she has been set free.

The (iiants from Trinity College 
were a little too strong for our gal- 
lant basketball club last Tuesday, as 
the U of M went down to defeat 54- 
37, For the first ten minutes of play 
it was a nip and tuck ball game with 
the Maroon and White outplaying 
Trinity. The Hartford club then found 
their eye and chalked up a 24-14 lead 
at half time. 

The third period started evenly but 
the Trinity height and speed soon 
wore down the varsity. Ed McGrath 
kept us in the game with consistent 
tosses through the hoop. 

( Hir froth continued their unde- 
feated string in athletics Tuesday 
evening as they whipped a classy 
Trinity freshman quintet in a thriller, 
41-89. Behind at the half 26-19 the 
frosh opened up t h '"' r offense in the 
third and fourth periods and thus 
netted their initial triumph on the 
court. Kay (iagnon paced the Lorden 
Coached team with three baskets and 
live foul shots from the free-throw 
lane. Captain Bob Johnston and Wally 
Celusniak presented the enthusiastic 
erowd with some clever ball handling 
and rebound work. 

Basketball activities after the 
Christmas recess include three games 
au;iy against Fort Devens, Boston 
University, and Springfield in that 
order. Any U of M student who plans 
to attend these games should cantact 
the sports staff of the Collegian for 
a student ticket.

Louie Clough Injured 
As Relay Team Loses 

The V of M trackmen found Am- ! 
heist too fast in an informal relay j 
race at the Amherst cage last i 
Thursday, but more serious than 
their defeat was an injury to anchor! 
man Louie dough. Clough pulled a ■ 
muscle in his leg while running the 
anchor lap and will not be able to 
run for at least three weeks. He will 
still be able to compete in the K of 
C track meet in Boston Garden Jan- 
uary 24, but the hiatus in his prac- 
tice routine may !iave effect on his 

In the informal return race with 
the Jeffs this afternoon in the local 
cage Clough's place on the relay 
quartet will be taken by Don Allen, 
heretofore an alternate. The other 
members of the foursome will be 
again Chris Yahnis, Ed Funkbouser, 
and Whitey Cossar. 

Chief cause of last week's loss to 

the Lord Jeffs was the fact that 

Coach Al Lumley had a better array 

of dasbmen. who were much better 

adapted for the short one-lap-per- 

I man race than the V of M's middle- 

| distance runners. Messrs. Yahnis, 

i Funkhouser, Cossar, and Cloucrh 

; would undoubtedly have made a het- 

] ter showing fa a mile relav race 

: where each would run 440 vards. T'le 

lack of sufficient phvsical fitness on 

thp part of the Perbvmen. wbo bad 

onlv been practicing ei"ht davs. was 

also a contributing factor in theiv 


The fresbman relav teams will 
race at 4:30 this afternoon with tb->

The University of Massachusetts 
opened its basketball season in an 
impressive manner last Friday night 
in the Cage, by crushing Norwic ': 
University, 54-37, before a crowd of 
about 1200 fans. 

The first half was comparatively 
dull, with both teams showing early 
season rust. The contest was abou' 
three minutes old before the lurtial 
basket was counted by the Horsemen 
but their lead was short lived. The 
U of M hoopsters suddenly caugh 4 
fire and began to roll up point after 
point only to have Norwich retaliate. 
The score at the half was 22-18 in 
favor of Massachusetts. 

Once the second half commenced, 
Jim McDonald, ex -Northampton 
Hitrh star, began to swish left-hand- 
ed shots from all angles and, with 
the aid of Captain Ed McGrath and 
Rill Looney, gave the "Rallmen a bio- 
lead that they never relinquished. 
The Statesmen really looked good in 
the second half; their passing was 
sharp and their shooting accurate.

It was decided to make 1000 Pic-

bridge Photo fans are all depended on 
to submit these for publication. So 
far, almost 150 have been turned in.

inside of three nights. I even picked 
up some Phi Sig's on their way home 
from a celebration in Northampton 
one time, and, not knowing I was a 
public official, they quite cheerfully 
confessed their intentions of gather- 
ing several stop signs for souvenirs; 
you can be sure that these intentions 
were never fulfilled. 

Students Contribute 

To Town Ed in- at ion 
Mr. Kingsley Perry, principal of 
the Amherst High School, told the 

"We use several university students 
as practice teachers here in Amherst 
High; these are to be found in the 
French, Biology, History, Home Eco- 
nomics, and English Departments. 
Our high school has a very high scho- 
lastic rating." 

In running a town with two col- 
leges, Amherst town officials, educa- 
tional advisors, and especially police- 
men, find their duties greatly ex- 
panded from those of the average 
small-town public servant.

tentative to NSA. 

Known communistic propaganda 
techniques, she explained, include 
'infiltrating into any newly formed 
organization on a full-time basis to 
attempt to guide its principles." 

American Youth for Democracy, a 
known communist-sympathizing or- 
ganization, has expressed its desire 
to work with NSA. So has the YMCA, 
the Federation of Catholic Students, 
the Progressive Students of America, 
and others, she said. 

Democratic Constitution 

The constitution of NSA is molded 
strictly along democratic lines, she 
explained. Inasmuch as any of these 
organizations wish to cooperate with 
NSA through democratic means, they 
are welcome to do bo. As soon as 
they use NSA for their own political 
purposes, they will be expelled. 

What positive program does the 
NSA have? 

On a regional level, Miss Wysocki 
revealed, NSA will gather and dis- 
seminate information concerning prob- 
lems of student government, faculty- 
student-administration cooperation, 
curricular reform, academic standards 
and others. 

N.S.A. To Gather Facts 

Problems such as discrimination 
against the Negro will be handled on 
the national level, she said. By 

gathering facts and distributing them 
to the publk at large, NSA attempts 
to call to the attention of the public 
the existing it iea. 

An extensive program of interna- 
tional student exchange and relief 
on a cultural, educational, and social 
level is being planned by NSA. A 
"Junior Year Abroad" in many of 
the colleges that do not have such a 
plan is proposed by NSA. 

Complete unanimity for joining 
NSA was expressed by this discus- 
sion group.

Cleota, the colored maid, as played 
by Lorraine Silverman was very 
cleverly done. Ursula Kronheim, al- 
though she appeared only in the first

gotten in the comments of praise 
when the play was over. It's hats off 
to the entire cast and the directors.

Finals-Fagged Students To Find Fun 
During Winter Carnival Festivities 

As the first semester draws to a close plans for the 1948 
Winter Carnival promise spectacular relaxation after final exams. 

A varied and lively program is scheduled for a full week 
from February 7 to 14, instead of the usual weekend set-ups of 
past years. Highlights include the | ■ 

traditional snow sculpturing and \ TLT D" I 1 1. J

the Carnival Rail and choosing a 
Carnival Queen. 
Several new gimmicks to be staged j 

include a possible air show, a fash- 
ion show presented by the Home Ec 
Club, and an ice skating exhibition 
by the Ice Birds of Springfield. 

The Carnival Queen is to be chos- 
en by judges circulating amonn 

tators and contestants at the 
outdoor program of skiing events. 
The Queen will be presented and 
ci owned later in the week. The 
iudges will remain secret until after 
the Queen is chosen. 

Other events scheduled for the 
week include a swimming show 
itagad by the Naiads, an interfra- 

;ty sing, interclass plays, the 

vman's Frolic by the University 
Chorale, a basketball game with 
I'.Y.M. followed by a sports dance,

Behind Abbey, Lab 

A new campus skating rink locat- 
ed behind Goessman and the Abbey, 
sponsored and financed by the Win- 
ter Carnival Committee will open 
shortly, Committee Chairman Bar- 
bara Nahlovsky announced. 

The rink, equipped with lights and 
a P. A. system, will be open for the 
season to the whole campus, and 
will be the scene of one of the High- 
lights of the Winter Carnival Week, 
when on February 19 the Spring- 
field Icebirds put on a professional 
figure skating exhibition. 

This project is under the direction 
of Carnival Committee members 
Barbara Nahlovsky, Tina Romano, 
Brooks Jakeman, and Faculty Ad- 
viser Larry Briggs, with the aid of 
the Engineering Department, and in 
particular Professor Hendrikson, 
who drew up the plan. The Spring- 
field Icebirds met with the commit- 
tee and gave some technical advice. 

Money for this work has been tak- 
en from a fund which the Winter 
Carnival has accumulate*) for the 
past few years to be used for the 
promotion of some winter sports for 
the benefit of the college campus.

More Seats On The Way In U-Store 
Floor Space Will Be Enlarged Soon 

By the end of three months you nourishment at the U Store. The 

may get that longed for seat in the 
' Store at the ten o'clock hour. Mr. 
I'nnald Hawley, director of the 
Store, promised to alleviate the 
blemi of a crowded, cramped "U" 
Stow and to make the store more 
comfortable for the students, 
through the new expansion program 
under way at North College. 

Within ninety days the store will 
have spread out over the first floor 
and even leaked down into the base- 
ment of North College. 

Mi. Gamble and Mr. Haller will 
conduct the economics department 
ir f, m the second floor. The two 
rooms which were formerly their of- 
- will be filled with eight tables 
*ach and a suitable number of chairs 
to take care of the overflow of hun- 
~tudents who receive their 

store will then have a lifting capo 

city of 164. 

Because of the difficulties in mov- 
ing the fountain and the lack of 
■pace to install another, the foun- 
tain service will be mchanged. How- 
ever, an extra coffee urn may be 
placed in one of the other rooms and 
a railing will be placed in front of 
the fountain. An electric dumb- 
waiter is now being installed at the 
right of the fountain. 

The book store will be moved from 
South College to the basement of 
North College. There will be no more 
waiting out in the cold, since the 
store will occupy most of the floor 
so that a line may form inside. The 
bookstore will have a new entrance

Senate, Maroon 
Elections Coming 

Senate and Maroon Key elections, 
which were postponed because of de- 
lay in holding class elections, will 
be held early in the second semester, 
disclosed Stephen (zarnecki, Senate 

The Senate is the men's student 

government organization. It is made 

up of eleven members seven seniors 
and four juniors. These men are 
elected during their iunior or soph- 
omore years respectively. 

Senators govern student activities, 
conduct and supervise campus elec- 
tions, appoint chairmen for dance 
committees, ami act as a disciplin- 
ary forte among the male stidents. 

One of the Senate's most import- 
ant functions is the representation 
of student interests before the facul- 
ty and administration. The recent 
move for joint organization of \VS 
GA and Senate is also intended to 
further st.ident-faculty relationships 
through the close cooperation of the 
two branches of Student Govern- 

Another of the Senate's important 

functions is the supervising of 

freshman hazing. The Senators draw

Questionnaires submitted to the Collegian by Presidential 
candidates reveal that they are about equally divided for and 
against NSA and 80'- favor Redmen over Statesmen as a team 

On the subject of NSA, the score 
is eight candidates for participation 
by the U of M, and eleven against 
with one man voicing no opinion. The 
reasons presented by those opposed 
to the NSA were "red" affiliations, 
need of more cooperation on campus 
first, and lack of advantage to stu- 
dents. Those in favor of NSA cited 
the added prestige to member schools 
and the benefit of informational ex- 
change between colleges. 

On the subject of a name for our 
teams, "Redmen" led Statesmen in 
the Candidates' preference by a score 
of U to 4. 

The age of the candidates 
averages out to about 23 years, the 
youngest raw 17, oldest 27. Only 
10'; of the candidates are married 
(two out of 20) and 40', (eight out 
of 20) are on Of have heen on the 
dean's list. Nearly 00'. are frater- 
nity men, while ten of the twenty 
are active- athletes.

New Buildings Planned 
For Housing Devenites 

by Esther Sherwood 
Mousing will be p r ovided for all 

veterans arriving from Devens in 
September, according to Robert 1). 
Hawley, treasurer of the University. 

"The eleven buildings under con- 
struction or soon to be started will 
be completed on or In-fore Sept. 1, 
1948," he stated, "according to the 
present building program." 

Of the three cement block dorms 
now under construction, the contract j 
calls for completion of one by March 
1, and the other two by June 1. 
There is also a self-liquidating, 
atvmni-finaneed dormitory under 
construction east of Fernald Hall. 

A bill filed with the legislature 
now would provide four more dormi- 
tories and a faculty housing project, j 
he revealed. 

The veterans arriving from Dev- ' 
ens in February will be housed in 
vacant rooms in Chadbourne, But- 
terfield, and Greenough, and in 
houses, Mr. Hawley stated. 

The bids for the Physics building 
Will close within a few days. The 
contract calls for completion in 22') I 
days. There is a penalty clause in 
the contract in case the building is 
not finished on time. 

Bids for construction of the En- 
gineering laboratory will close Feb- 
ruary 1, he said.

Collegian To Play 
Cupid To Dateless 

Starting next semester the (UAb - 
atom will run a series of articles in- 
tended |o alleviate the plight of 
lonesome komeos on the campus. 

At present time there are nearly 
three men for every woman at the 
Univeraity, a situation unfavorable 
to male gallants seeking feminine 
encouragement, advice and consola- 
tion. The arrival of about 2">0 more 
healthy young men from Devens will 
further unbalance the ratio. 

As a public service, the Cotleoian 
is undertaking a survey of eligible 
young ladies on and off campus. 
Questions which it is hoped the com- 
ing articles will answer will be: 

1. Where to find a woman 

2. Where to take one. 
Benevolent students with answers 

to these questions can s«-nd them to 
the Collegian. Each one will be care- 
fully considered. 

Peak Enrollment Hits 
U of M in '49-Lanphear 

The peak of enrollment is not ex- 
pected to arrive until 1!>4" at the 
l'. of M., it was disclosed toda\ by 

Registrar M. 0. Lanphear. 
The gradual decrease in veteran 

students after that time will some 
what alleviate the cro wde d condi- 
tions on campus, but the acquisition 
of an ever increasing numhei of 
high school students to supplant the 
veterans will make the process of 
thinning out a slow one, he said. 

"The development of the Business 
Administration and Engineering 
Departments, especially will increase 
the educational advantages of the 
School and bring more students to 
it," continued Mr. Lanphear. 

"Although there are 1200 veterans 
at the (] Of M at Amherst, and the 
pros p e ct! for a drop iii student M 
rollment in the near future seem 
improbable we hops to return even- 
tually to the old housing conditions 
of one student to a single room, two 
students to a double room. 

"We would consider ourselves full 
to capacity if each dormitory iiad 
two-thirds as many inhabitants as it 
now has. 

"At the present time about half 
the male students admitted to this 
school are recent high school triad- 
uates, and the other half are reter- 
ans. The quota for women students 
is necessarily low under these condi 

When asked for his opinion in n 
gard to the news that non-veterans 
may be taken at Devens, or that 
Devens might become a four-year 
course school. Mr. Lamphear stated 
that such matters were up to the 
state legislature, and that the Uni- 
versity would be unable to state 
anything one way or the other in 
regard to these issues.

The U OF M's very own elections 
Wednesday, January 14, will give 
the campus new class officers as 
well as decisions on three import- 
ant issues here at the U of M. 

\\ , trust that students will look 
over carefully the qualifications of 
the presidential candidates listed 
elsewhere in the Collegia* and at- 
tempt to choose the best qualified 
person foi the job, remembering thai 
although these jobs are not impor 
tant from an activity point of view, 
they are significant in view of the 

fact that people elected to class of- 
ficership come into the limelight and 

later achieve offices in the Senate 
WSGA, and honorary societies. 

More important, even, than the 
class officer-ships, we feel, is fie ref- 
erendum issue calling ,nl ' ■ joint- 

student council form of government 

When this is passed, the Senate an I 

WSGA will start meeting weekly m- 

til such time as a new constitution 

with a model form of government 

based on the best of other colleges is 
drawn up. 

We urge a positive vote, too, for 

NSA, because of the potential good 

in this ROW organisation, and be- 
cause we have two alternatives in 

case we find communistic elements 
in the organisation. We can fight 
from within, or withdraw and fight 
\S.\ as outsiders, either step prov- 
ing us worthy of the name universi- 
ty. We do not think we will have to 
take either step, but joining hands 
with the 'id or so colleges and uni- 
versities, including our neighbors 
Smith and Mount Holyoke, can !>• 

nothing but a step forward for the 
U of M. 

The case for IJedmen vs. Sta- 
men is strictly a matter of prefer- 
ence, and we remain completely im- 
partial on the final referendum is- 
sue. What is most important, of 
course, is getting out and declaim ■ 
yourself one way or the other on 
these issues. Let's fret out there ami 
vote loir;. 


The schedule for the final exams Dean's office, pointed out that the 
will be announced in the Collegian a enlargement of the Engineering and 

week from tomorrow. This final edi- 
tion of the Collegian for the semester 
will be published one day late in 
order to include the results of class 
elections and the Snail schedule, both 
of which will be known Wednesday. 

Reason for the delay in announc- 
ing the schedule — finals begin the 
following Friday, the 23rd — is a 
deadline date of January 15 for 
material for the college catalogue. 

Miss Mildred Pierpont, w'.io manip- 
ulates the class hours of the U of 
M students in addition to other 
various and sundry duties in the 

other departments resulted in a 
larger than usual amount of prep- 
aration for the catalogue. 

Junior and senior final schedule 
will probably follow the old ar- 
rangement whereby all those with 
say 8:00*S MWF will have their 
finals at a certain time. Freshmen 
and sophomores, because of such 
large classes, will probably be sched- 
uled differently, according to Miss 

Our advice to bewildered students 
not sure how to start studying for 
finals is: Know the stuff cold! 

The Walls Came Tumbling 

The Student Senate must know- 
how the citiesens of Jerico felt when 

the walls came tumbling down. 

Thci. arbitrary ruling and frater- 
nity connections have failed to keep 
the Independent Students from or- 
ganizing a veteran movement. 

Representative government is fi 
nally reaching the University of 
Massachusetts. A representative 
government has been successful i:i 
the U. S. for over 160 years. I be- 
lieve it has every chance of success 
on this campus too. 

Our first opportunity to get bette> 
government comes Jan. 14, in the 
election of class officers. This elec- 
tion will tell the trend. 

The real test Is in the election of 
the Student Senate in th" spring 
If my guess is right we'll have 
new and better Senate to adminisl. 
a new and more democratic cons'.:

basketball team won a nice victory 
from Norwich and the rooting SBC 
tion made fools of themselves. \s in 
all cases of this kind, only a few 
were involved, but like the grafting 
general, mst a few can generate a 
powerful odor. 

The practice of booing the referee 
and creating a disturbance just as 
the opponents are shooting a foul 
shot belongs at a professional wrest 
ling match and not at a basketball 
game between two college team- 

The past record of Mass. Aggie and 
Mass. State as a sportsmanlike liosl 
is a good one. In the past such con- 
duct, in the rare instances it ap- 
peared, was treated by frosty stares 
from the rest of the rooting secion 
and seldom occurred after the open 
ing game. 

Such conduct is unwelcome and 
embarrassing to our own team. 

It hurt to sec this rudeness di- 
rected at a graduate of this univer- 
sity, one of the finest athletes tha' 
ever wore the Maroon and White. In 
fact, Fred Riel suffered a severe in- 
jury while competing for the college 
Hut he was booed for doing his job 
as he saw best. 

C, row i n g to university status 
means maturing. Let's not see a re- 
gression to a childish habit which 
was long ago outgrown.

The new "coke" machine in the

Few Exams Featured 
In English Colleges 

Breakfast in your room, one exam 
every two years, and c'asses if you 
are in the mood — those are a few 
features of college life in Britain. A 
life that's being share I by several 
hundred Americans — mostly veter- 
ans cu rently attending English 

Living and studying in colleges 
built before Columbus discovered 
Amercia, these Yanks are enrolled 
in Institutions ranging from Oxford 
and Cambridge to the Royal Acade- 
my of Dramatic Art and the Leath- 
ersellers Technical College. And 
according to Paul Pearson, reporting 
on College life abroad for Varsity, 
the young man's magazine Ameri- 
cans a v deeply impressed by Eng- 
land's aVStem of education. 

"Casnai" is the word to describe 
the English student, says Pearson. 
He is more serious than bis Ameri- 
can counterpart (but no more "ea- 
ger"'), is lolly without being a back 
shipper, and tends to "talk shop" 
constantly. Instead of eheering wild- 
\\ at a SOCCer or cricket game, he 
can be counted on — in cases of ex- 
treme excitement — to say, "Well 
done, Cambridge!" 

Modest and quiet application, the 

Varsity article states, is the key- 
note of the English educational 
method. De g r ees are awarded only 
on the basis of long exams given 
at the end of two <>r three years of 
study. Classes are optional, but 'tu- 
tors" require essays at the weekly 
meeting with students, and follow 
these with long, Involved discussions. 
The luxuries of breakfast in your 
room are countered by heavier re- 
strictions on leaving the college area 
in the evenings or for week-ends. 

Pearson concludes his overseas re- 
port to Varsity by saying that Eng- 
lish school officials expected the 
Americans to act like "cowboys." 
Instead, he declares, they now say: 
"The Yanks are kind, thoughtful, 
and quick to return hospitality. And 
their pel SOIia l lty is second to none."

In a surprisingly close and thrill-

achusetts basketball team dropped 
their third straight contest agains' 
a powerful Maine ball club at Oron 
by a score of 59-48. 

Overcoming an early Maine lead 
and trailing by just three points at 
the end of the half, the Maroon an ' 
White cagers fought a nip and tuck 
battle until the waning minutes of 
the game. The tide turned agains 
the Statesmen only when Ed Mc- 
Grath was forced to leave the game 
on persona] fouls and Stan Was 
kiewicz suffered a turned knee. 

Bill Looney pl ay ed his usual stel 
lar game at center scoring 15 point 
and sparkling at defense. Joe Mas 
terson, who scored seven points an ' 
Captain Ed McGrath, who tallied 
five points, both played excellent de- 
fensive games. 

Last night the U of M branch a' 
Port Devens played host to the U o*

was that Bill Looney, who was hig 
scorer for Devens last year, last 
night was wearing the uniform o 
the Maroon and White. 

Saturday, the U of M will en 
counter Boston University, whic 
currently has one of the best hoo" 
squads in New England. By upset- 
tin': a favored Harvard five, the p 
l'. team established themselves a 
one of the basketball threats in Nev. 
England. The U of M therefore, wil 
enter the gam a definite underdog 

Lacking In Manpower 
Mermen Meet Ephmen 

Still lacking in depth, the U ot 
M swim team will be out to avenge 
the 19-68 lacing handed them by the 
Williams College swimmers last 
year. However, Coach Joe Rogers 
believes that the Maroon swimmers 
will have but a slim chance against 
the Ephmen this Saturday at 3:00 
in the U of M pool. 

Pointing out that only eight me 
participated for the Mass. natators 
in the only previous meet, Coac i 
Rogres emphasized the need for 
more swimmers. Surprisingly, the 
Rogersmen splashed their way to an 
impressive 45-29 victory over Boston 
University. Leading the Massachu- 
setts attack were Dick Hall, a de- 
pendable all-around man, Tom O 
Brien, specialist in the breast strok ■ 
and Joe Chmura, one of New Eng 
land's outstanding divers. 

Bill Ryan, who had been expect- 
ed to win many an event for the U 
of M swimmers, has been declared 
ineligible by the Yankee Conference 
Their claim, disputed by Coach Bog 
ers, is t'.iat Ryan has already swum 
four years in varsity competition 
Bud Hall, before the war one of the 
nation's outstanding swimmers, now 
finds that his studies will not per- 
mit his participation in swimming. 

At present, the men comprising 
the swimming team are as follcws:

Clifton A. Bishop, known as 
"Bish" to all who frequented the 
Phys. Ed. building, passed away 
on Christmas morning. He had 
worked in the locker room of the

athletic teams, often manifested 
by violent griping, will long be re-

The northern trip to the University 
of Maine last week-end was a real 
treat for the members of the basket- 
ball squad. Many of the players said 
that it was the best trip in their col- 
lege career. I hope that future sched- 
ules in all sports will include many 
trips of this nature. 

Although on the short end of the 
score, Lanky Bill Looney was sensa- 
tional in the game as his all-around 
play was extremely effective. Coach 
Ball was also pleased with the coop- 
erative play of the team. It was only 
in the closing minutes of the game 
when Maine really had more than a 
few points advantage. 

Coaches Tommy Eck and Earl Lor- 
den will attend the annual meeting of 
the National Football Coaches' As- 
sociation in New York this weekend. 

Any student on campus who is in- 
terested in an appointment to West 
Point should see Colonel Evans at 
his office in Drill Hall. Incidentally, 
athletic ability might help. 

Thursday night at the Springfield 
Coloseum the strong Holy Cross 
quintet will oppose AIC. Don't fail 
to see this top-notch team in action. 

Coach Larry Briggs has just re- 
tired as the President of the Nation- 
al Soccer Association. During his 
term in office the association de- 
veloped tremendously. 

Because Skiing conditions are ex- 
cellent all over Western Massachu- 
setts, many ski tows are operated on 
week-ends. Chickley Alps outside of 
Greenfield is an outstanding place. 
Here, one can rent ski equipment on 
any day. Room and board accommo- 
dations are available for three dol- 
lars a day. This is a good opportuni-

lightful weekend at a reasonable ex-

U of M Hockey Team 
Opens With William, 

Hockey, returning to U of M, get 5 
under way Sat., Jan. 17, with | 
Statesmen opposing Williams c 
lege at Williamstown. 

The contest will begin a five-gam' 
schedule for the Maroon, who w:. 
tackle New Hampshire on the 
lowing Tuesday at Durham. Con 
tests remaining are with Deerf. : 
(there), Springfield (here), an! 
Middlebury (there). 

It seems apparent that there was 
some dissention in the ranks v. 
it was decided to bring hockey bad 
to the school. It's return was strong- 
ly urged by alumni who had hockt-v 
in their day and want it now. 

The problem has been to finM \ 
playing surface. In the 'thirties 
games were played on the colli/ 
pond. Since then, however, calcium 
chloride, used to keep the roads is> 
free, has drained off into the pom, 
making it impossible for the a 
to employ means for shove 
away the snow other than havin; 
the students do it themselves. 

There seems to be some qucsti 
as to the success of the out-door 
| rink. It would take a mighty harlv 
j soul to brave the winter winds in 
order to watch a hockey game. Th > 
will make the experiment of the 14:* 
( of February when U of M neid 
Springfield on that rink, somei 
to look forward to.

Hoop Teams Afraid 
To Go West-Ill.' Mills 

Why is it that a certain group 
of Eastern colleges and universities 
still prefer to stay in their own 
backyard — meeting Western and 
Far Western basketball teams only 
at their own convenience, and only 
on home floors? Are Eastern hoop 
teams afraid to go West? 

That question is asked by Doug- 
las R. Mills, athletic director of the 
University of Illinois, in the curren 
issue of Varsity, the young man's 
magazine. And his answer is two- 
fold: it's the fear of losing to West- 
ern opposition. And it's the fear ot 
losing big box-offices. 

By keeping their eyes on the 
juicy bait of dollar signs, Mills de- 
clares, Eastern metropolitan teams 
may cripple intersectional basket- 
hall for good. That's the only result 
possible if schools like St. John's. 
Fordham, New York University. 
Manhattan, City College of New 
York, Temple, and Canisius continue 
their course. 

Mills points out that in the four- 
teen years that Western teams have 
journeyed to the East for occasional 
games, they've won over sixty per- 
cent of their encounters. Similarly, 
when stars of both coasts met last 
March in a benefit match, that rec- 
ord was underlined by a West Coast 

By losing to Western opposition, 
Eastern teams suffer a loss of pres- 
tige and then a loss of box-office 
receipts because of decreased draw- 
ing power. And so the whole ques- 
tion of finance. 

Still another consideration, the 
challenging varsity article continues, 
is the position taken by many met- 
•ortolitan teams that Western bas- 
ketball abides with buccaneering. It 

Johnston High Scorer 
In Intra-Mural Game 

During the week preceding the 
Christmas vacation, twelve intra- 
mural basketball teams were in ac- 
tion. Butterfield "A" beat Green- 
ough "A", 24-9; Commonwealth "B" 
trounced Poultry Science Club 23-3: 
A.E.P. edged QTV 16-14; SAE los' 
to Phi Sigma Kappa, 18-25; Lamb- 
da Chi won over Alpha Gamma Rho 
31-19; and Theta Chi piled up 23 
points as against 13 for TEP. 

Leading scorer for the week was 
Evan Johnson. Ev, playing left for- 
ward for Lambda Chi, scored eig'it 
points in the first half and ten 
points in the second to give Mm a 
total of eighteen for the night. Run- 
ner-up was John Reed who regis- 
tered ten points for Butterfield "A" 

is often said that officiating in the 
West is bad, that floors are bad, 
that their style of play is rough and 

Mills discounts this. He finds the 
officiating fair all over the country- 
and insists that since Western teams 
have been forced to learn Eastern 
Regulations because of the metro- 
politan stay at home policy, it 
would be just as easy for the East- 
ern fives to reverse that learning 

And so, this former "Fighting Ill- 
inois" basketball - coach concludes, 
"For the sake of collegiate basket- 
ball, these Eastern Schools should 
make every effort to build and car- 
ry on the right kind of intersection- 
al competition — a rivalry based on 
keen competition, equitable treat- 
ment, and improvement of the 
game." Forget the gate, the Varsity 
article suggests and see the rest of 
America. e 

U of M vs Mass. U 

Dear Editor: 

Ever since last summer when the 
status of this school was changed * 
that of university there has been 
some problem as to what thii 
lege should be called. The offkuj 
title has become University of Mia 
achusetts and taking the first letter! 
of the big words (and they an 
the name has become U of M. N 
U of M is nice and original bit look 
at it. When we were Mass A.. 
one was able to discern from the 
name that it was Massachusetts 
Agricultural School, when Man 
State, that it was a state college 
But get an out of stater and mention 
U of M and he won't know wha: 
you're talking about. The real 
that in the initials U of M then - 
acutally no clue to the school nam* 

In the past, the banners of th> 
school have read Mass. Aggie an! 
Mass. State, fow that this is a uni- 
versity let them read Mass. I 
Though the official title may reman 
as University of Massachusetts •» 
can still speak of the school U 
Mass. U when mentioning our Alma 
Mater. As for other names, Univ. : 
Mass. is a strict abbreviation ltd 
MU just isn't right. This is 
cow college. Mass. U. is common sty!? 
but still has its own originality 
Whereas the University of Maryland 
is spoken of as Maryland, and the 
University of Pennsylvania as P** 
Massachusetts is too long and KM 
to abrupt. Mass. U. would fit 

Another angle which nnst 
looked into is that of the 
newspapers. They are either callo- 
us Mass. St., U. of Massachusetts 
and Massachusetts, and in oi 
of which I read but last week. An- 
heist. This latter title was em- 
ployed simply because Massachusetts 
was too long. 

The perfect name for our ^ 
is Mass.. U. Our football banners 
could read simply Mass. U. As t. 
student body it should be your ear- 
nest desire to get a name worthy • 
this school. When asked what collet 
you attend the easiest, most com 
plete, and exact way of answer^? 
would be "MASS. U." Got on * 
MASS. U. bandwagon and drop » 
line to the Collegian giving y° ur 
opinion on this title for our unftef

To avoid even the slightest tinge

World Student Service Fund in the 
U of M Campus Chest drive instead. 

According to a joint statement re-

WSSF To Get Big Share 
Of Campus Chest Funds 

"Seeds of Destiny", the film pre- 
sented at convocation on January 8 
as the first of this year's Campus 
Chest Activities, indicated the ur- 
gency of student contributions in 
1948 for war-ravaged countries. 

"This year's drive is emphasizing 
the needs of fellow students in for- 
eign nations, students who have been 
so much less fortunate than our- 
selves," said Bill Tunis, '49. "The 
World Student Service Fund, which 
has been designated to receive 8691 
of our campus contributions, works 
upon the theory that students 
throughout the world are one great 
community and raises its funds only 
from college campuses throughout 
the nation," he said. 

Each dollar donated to W.SSr in 
1947-48 will he divided in this way: 
:i:w; to the European Student Fund, 
33.39? to the National Student Re- 
lief Committee of China, and the re-

"Apologia pro Vita Sua" 

To each outgoing: Collegian editor is given the opportunity to 
expound an "Apologia pro Vita Sua." 

There are assuredly many more important issues to be given 
attention than the relative efficiency of a college newspaper edi- 
tor, but there is perhaps one aspect of the problem that might 
merit discussion. 

During the first part of this semester I was blasted as a "cal- 
low youth" in the Brickbats column. Recently I was described as 
a "hopeless cynic and fanatic." These are by no means the sum 
total of the epithets tossed my way, but I feel that in these two 
descriptions we have an unique evolution set forth. Hormone di- 
vision of the pyschology and biology departments take note! 

The picture is very vivid to me — I can see the young, immature 
adolescent entering into office with wide, bright eyes, seeing the 
world around him as the apex of perfection. I can see the same 
individual twelve weeks later, hunched over a typewriter, a ciga- 
rette (possibly marijuana) dangling from the corner of his mouth, 
all his insipid faith in humanity (like L'il Abner's) shattered, 
(lasting every human institution that civilization has created. 

But enough of the epithets — which include, by the way, a "yel- 
low journalist" and "no gentleman". Suffice it to say that my phil- 
jsophy — which includes a fundamental faith in mankind — re- 
mains unshattered, although my knowledge of campus problems 
has been augmented. 

One of the greatest physical needs of the U of M, I have found, 
is money. With more money, we could enhance our food situation, 
attract high-calibre teachers to fill the new posts created by our 
expansion program, and in general build modem classrooms and 

But ascribing the solution to the problem on a purely monetary 
basis is like tabling discussion of an important decision until a 
subsequent meeting — it accomplishes nothing. More important 
than a discussion of money, which we may or may not obtain, is 
an examination of how to improve our campus with the medicine 
we can obtain. 

A strong, organized student government such as has been 
drafted into existence with this past election will do much to off- 
set the apathy on campus. But school spirit is more a function of 
the individual, than something that can be demanded by an out- 
sider. Greater cooperation among students, faculty, and admin- 
istration can be based on a sincere understanding and sympathy 
for mutual problems. 

There are practical answers to the practical problems that have 
mushroomed into existence with the speedy expansion of the U 
of M, and the Collegian under the competent management of Edi- 
tor Ed Cynarski and Managing Editor Hank Colton will, besides 
capably reporting the news of the week, I know, continue to pro- 
mote understanding on campus.

With the coming of final exams 
at the end of each semester come de- 
mands by students for a reading 
period preceding them to provide 
a better opportunity for preparation. 

The question has been considered 
several times previously by tV 
Dean's office, according to Miss Mil- 
died Pierpont, who schedules the ex- 
ams, but n i conclusions have be^. 
reached. One year, however, the v 
animation | •' iod was extended *"> 
two weeks, ■■■ hich allowed a grea**^ 
amount of t ; ?ne between exams. TMl 
system was criticized by the studen 
themselves, many of whom asko ' 

that their exams to be moved up so 
that they could fro home sooner. 

Another problem regarding this 
matter is that many students would 
probably spend the time at *hings 
other than studying. Some instruc- 
tors might also take advantage of a 
reading period by assigning more 
work for the finals. 

Regardless, the matter is worth an 
investigation by the Dean's office 
assisted perhaps by a student com- 
mittee. After comparing the condi- 
tions at this university with those 
schools which have a reading period, 
fair conclusions could be drawn.

Dainty Candidates? 

Dear Editor: 

Our dainty, lily-white, innocent 

I have just finished reading the 
article in ihe last Collegian on the 
views of the candidates honored by 
nomination to the offices of the 
presidency of their respective class- 
es. I refer to those candidates who 
opposed joining NSA on t'.ie grounds 
of some obscure idea of communist 
tendencies in that group. 

This feeling of communist domina- 
tion, "red" scare, etc., is general. 
One encounters it in many guises 
and many situations. Yet it has no 
place on a college campus. Why? Be- 
cause it is dangerous, more danger- 
ous than one thinks. 

Let us suppose that NSA is a 
communist-dominated organization 
that is run democratically unde>- 
parliamentary law. I urge any and 
all colleges to join it an 1 become ac- 
tive in it. If enough joined, it would 
Ik- no longer under communist dom- 
ination, since the number of non- 
communists would soon over-balance 
the others. 

I fail to see how any communist 
domination of a student organiza- 
tion in the United States could be so 
great that a few more on the othe- 
side would not counterbalance it. Af- 
ter all. in a demoneratic organiza- 
tion by definition, the will of the ma 
jority is what counts. 

In other words, if any organ'zi- 
, tion that we know of, which Is run 
under democratic ru'e of the majori- 
ty, is communist dominated or even 
l slightly tinged in that direction, let's 
get in there and fight for our own 
I ideas and ideals. As was said in I 
| recent editorial of the New York- 
Herald Tribune, "We who believe 
I in democracy need not assume tha' 
! when any contact occurs between n 
Democrat and a Communist it will 
j be the Democrat who succumbs. We 
should get rid of this pervasive idea. 
I which is as wrong as it it timid and 
1 blind, for it ishigh time to enter th ! 
I battle of ideas openly and coura- 

The battle approaches. It will 
j either be a battle of ideas takng 
' place all over the world on an in- 
tellectual level, or it will be a phys- 
ical battle — nay, war, which will 
probably be the last that this poo- 
seared earth will be able to stand 
for some time. 

Hence, University of Massachu- 
setts, through your elected represen- 
tatives, let's get into that battl" 
wherever we may find it. Let's not 
sit back griping, fearing, passing 
false rumors, and in general showing 
a lazy, timid attitude. Let's get in 
there and prove the mettle of De- 
mocracy and our ideals of humanity

A strict enforcement of parking and 
smoking regulations, though it may 
inconvenience sone °roups, is a nec- 
essary part of the program. 

The greatest danger, it seems to 
us, exists in the veterans village 
known as Federa' f'irole. With ove

Perhaps this will be a posthumous 
oration, depending on the outcome of 
class elections, which I have no way 
of foretelling as this is written, but 
at least it will be the nursing of a 
point of honor to make a reply to 
last week's column written by Hank 

To begin with, I was accused of 
forgetting to include the tradition 
behind the name Statesmen. If 1 
forgot to mention it in so many 
words, certainly the intelligent read- 
ers could glimpse the implications of 
the overall university tradition as- 
sociated with Redmen, when I talked 
about the Indian on the college seal 
which was adopted in 1863 and 
same seal of the state of Massachu- 
setts. Certainly the tradition behind 
the Indian as a part of our state 
and the university is the same as the 
name Statesman implies. 

In favor of the name Statesmen, 
it was pointed out that it denotes a 
man well versed in the art of states- 
manship, and that Massachusetts is 
a state of great statesmen. This can- 
not be denied, but I fail to see tin- 
connection. For then once, we are in- 
terested in making the University 
of Massachusetts famous for its 
football team as well as its academic 
standing. Rather than a team of 
Daniel Websters or Leverett Salton- 
stalls, reading tomes of the general 
court at football rallies, or flashing 
"A" papers in poli sci in the oppos- 
ing team's face, a team of flashing 
red demons in shoes would be more 
interesting to the crowd on the side 
lines. The connection of Statesman 
with a dusty remembrance of hoary- 
old politicians is to me far more 
ludicrous than a man wrapped in a 
blanket on the players bench, even 
if he did have a feather in his hair. 

To the question of which is more 
admirable, the smooth intonings of 
a male quartet, or the fierce war- 
hoop, I would answer that in the 
concert hall, a quartet would be very

What is the deal? The university 
graciously accepts us, with the 
flash of Uncle Sam's greenbacks in 
its mind. We were greatly surprised 
to find as many as two tickets for 
illegally parking in front of our so- 
called homes. We were referred to a 
notice on the bulletin board which 
stated that we could park, in a place 
a quarter of a mile away where 
there isn't any room. 

The reason for this is to allow 
fire apparatus to enter. If our car3 
obstruct fire trucks, why is the staff 
permitted to park in the same spaces 
that are restricted to us. The Offi- 
cer with the shiny new Ford in-

to drive up the hill near the dorms.

The disadvantage of a student 
fire-fighting force is that it is non- 
existent during vacations, and diffi- 
cult to assemble over weekends. The 
fire brigade at Amherst College, al- 
though it includes students, has a 
nucleus of college staff members. 
Such a plan seems feasible for the 
U of M. 

Equipment for a fire-fighting 
force could be obtained, Treasurer 
Hawley said. What is needed is a 
group of in f er^st-d staff members 
and students to form a unit. We
